Within the ERP Agent configuration file "SmWebAsSSO.conf", the documentation (Agent Guide for SAP Web AS r5.6 SP4) mentions the "Resource" configuration parameter. The question is whether multiple 'Resource=<realm>' values must be specified within "SmWebAsSSO.conf", (e.g. /webdynpro/, /logon/, /testapp/), for every protected SAP resource.


The only necessary resource (indeed, the only one that should be specified) is "Resource=/smwebasagent/". No other resources should be specified within "SmWebAsSSO.conf". Within the Policy Server configuration, a "smwebasagent" protected realm must be created, associated with a User Attribute response set to a variable name WASUSERNAME. Set this response to the attribute (e.g. "uid") that should be presented to SAP for SSO2 ticket generation.
