Defining Security RequirementsLocate this document in the navigation structure


The following security requirements can be set for a service/security node or an alias:

  • Standard (default)

  • SSL

If SSL is specified, then an HTTPS connection is required for this service. A call using an HTTP connection is answered with an error message.


Proceed as follows to define the security requirements for a service/service node:

  1. In transaction SICF, call the required service or service node.


    If you define the logon order in a service node, the settings are passed on to all services under this node.

  2. Choose Change.

  3. Under Service Data/Security Requirements, select the Standard or SSL option.

  4. Save your entry with Save.
