Procedure documentation Configuring the Use of SSL on the J2EE Engine  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


Use the following procedure to set up SSL on the J2EE Engine. If you work in a cluster environment, then perform the steps for each server that is to use SSL.


There are also templates available for automating some of the configuration tasks and for validating the configuration. For more information, see Installation and Upgrade Guides SAP Business Suite Applications Cross-Applications Tools Automated Configuration.


You have administration rights for performing keystore maintenance on the J2EE Engine. The corresponding role is KeystoreAdministrator.


For each server that is to support SSL:


       1.      Create the server’s key pair to use for SSL.

       2.      Assign the key pair to use for the specific SSL port.

       3.      If you are using client certificates for user authentication, then configure their use on the J2EE Engine.

       4.      Test the SSL connection.


After completing the configuration, make sure that application or scenario-specific configuration changes are also made. Examples of changes that may be necessary include:

        Changing the protocol from HTTP to HTTPs in URLs or other parameters.

        Changing the hostname from a short name to a full-qualified hostname in URLs or other parameters.

        Changing the HTTP port to the target HTTPs port in URLs or other parameters.

For more information, see the application or scenario-specific configuration documentation.


The J2EE Engine is configured for using SSL.
