Procedure documentation Configuring Credential Attributes  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


Configuring the credential attributes consists of registering the password and the alias of each credential which is used by Adobe document services, as well as setting other attributes such as the sha1 value.


On AIX platforms, you need to have installed a full version of JCE on the J2EE engine that hosts the Adobe document services in the folder (<JRE_HOME>/lib/security). The JCE files are required for extracting data from the credential file. Restart the AS Java after the installation of the JCE.



Ask your JDK vender for more details on downloading and installation of the JCE files.



       1.      Navigate to http://<server>:<port>/nwa  to start the SAP NetWeaver Administrator.


<server> is the AS Java where the Adobe document services are installed and <port> is the HTTP port of the AS Java.

       2.      Choose Configuration Management Infrastructure Management  Adobe Document Services

       3.      Choose Configuration in the left pane.

       4.      Select Credentials from the list and choose Add New Object. The dialog box Create New Credential appears.

       5.      In the Alias field, enter the alias of the credential you installed. Enter the following:

       ReaderRights, when you configure a Reader right credential for usage rights.

       DocumentCertification, when you configure a credential for certification.

       ServerSignature, when you configure a credential for digital signatures.


Entries for the name of the credential are case-sensitive.

       6.      From the Type field, select the type of credential you are configuring (P12, HSM or MSCAPI).


The fields that become active and available for editing depend on the credential type that you choose.

       7.      For a P12 File, select the credential from the list.


The list displays all P12 files that are installed in the directory mentioned in  Installing a PKCS #12 Credential.

       8.      In the sha1 field, enter the sha1 value. This value can be copied from the credential file itself, and is typically a string of numeric and alphabetic characters. (This step is optional if your credential only contains one sha1 value.)


If you entered ReaderRights in the Alias field, you must not make any entry in the sha1 field.

       9.      For an HSM Record, type the Slot and DLL Path value in the corresponding fields.

   10.      In the Password field, enter the password you received together with the credential you installed.

   11.      Confirm the password, and then Save. The page refreshes and the list of registered credentials at the top of the page includes the credential you just added.

   12.      Restart the AS Java.
