Adding the AuthProxy PluginLocate this document in the navigation structure

Use the Cordova command line interface to install the AuthProxy plugin.


  • Set up the development environment.
  • Create your Cordova project.
  • Add your OS platforms.
  • On Android these permissions are required:
      • <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
      • <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
      • <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" />
  • On iOS:
    • The plugin depends on afariaSLL.a
    • Requires the link flag of "-lstdc++," if not yet included.


  1. Add the AuthProxy plugin by entering the following at the command prompt, or terminal:

    cordova plugin add kapsel-plugin-authproxy --searchpath KAPSEL_HOME/plugins

    Note KAPSEL_HOME=C:\SAP\MobileSDK3\KapselSDK.
  2. Edit the config.xml file and set the preference SAPKapselHandleHttpRequests to true.

    <preference name="SAPKapselHandleHttpRequests" value="true" />

  3. (Optional) To see a list of installed plugins in your Cordova project, open a command prompt or terminal window, navigate to your Cordova project folder, and enter:
    cordova plugins
    The Cordova command line interface returns a JSON array showing installed plugins, for example:
    [ 'cordova-plugin-camera',     
    'cordova-plugin-file' ] 

    This example shows that the Cordova project has the Cordova core Camera, Accelerator (device-motion), and File plugins installed.

  4. Modify the files in the Cordova project's www folder as appropriate for your project.
  5. Execute the following command to copy the files in the Cordova project's www folder to the platform directories:
    cordova prepare android
    cordova prepare ios 
    cordova prepare windows
  6. Use the Android IDE, Xcode, or Visual Studio to deploy and run the project.
  7. (Optional) For iOS, if the application uses Afaria mutual certificate authentication, or if multiple applications on the devices need to share the credentials, you must first build and deploy Client Hub to the device, and then add the "clienthubEntitlements" and "$(CFBundleIdentifier)" items to the shared keychain groups in the application's project settings in Xcode.
