Security Configuration

The SAP Fiori Launchpad and associated Web applications manage the logon process as well as access to data. You may be required to enter Fiori username and password, or select a user certificate.

Authentication and Certificate Requirements

SAP Fiori Client supports HTTP and HTTPS protocols. The application supports Basic authentication and mutual authentication.

If the certificate error dialog appears, this indicates that the certificate authority used by the Fiori server is not trusted by the device. To correct this, determine the certificate authority used and then, if needed, add it to your device's list of trusted certificates as instructed below. Also, the SAP Fiori Client does not operate in an environment where a self-signed SSL certificate is used to configure the Fiori server.
