Issue/Introduction

Due to a limitation with redirects in the RA.Webservice REST it is not possible to natively trigger jobs through the REST API of SAP IBP.

Instead of receiving the x-csrf-token and cookie a html body is received with the address of the SAML server.

 

Cause

The version of the REST interface integrated in the RA.REST cannot handle redirects to SAML

Environment

Release : 12.3

Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE

Resolution

There are two possible workarounds:

  1. Disabling SAML by adding the Query Parameter 'saml2=disable'
  2. The x-csrf token and session cookie can be fetched through a cURL command inside the REST job. Subsequently, the x-csrf-token header is captured in the Postprocessing tab and pushed to the next RA.REST job with the :PUBLISH command
