Can KCEC-ERP transfer the image via HTTPS

Postby ruud.hakkesteegt@kofax.com » Tue Jan 27, 2009 6:21 am

I have a prospect who needs to release very sensitive images and therefore wants to use a secure connection between the Kofax Server and the Archive Server. Does KCEC-ERP support HTTPS to transfer images from the Kofax Server to the Archive Server?

I have been looking in the manuals and in the Installation Manual (Version 2.4) starting on page 12 it only talks about the SAPHTTP protocol.

Hello Ruud,

as the release script uses http put requests to store the image on the content server using https instead will not work. Find attached a short documentation about the upload process

Best regards,

Rolf

Hi to all,

according to SAP’s technical documentation, the latest BC:AL spec only supports HTTP, not HTTPS.
Please have a look at following SAP link for more technical answers:
:arrow: https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/index?r ... 6#section4

The complete BC:AL spec can be found in “Documentation SAP NetWeaver Application Server 6.20 (ZIP 949 KB)â€

I do have to correct myself:
It is possible to use https for secure connections between SAP server, Archive Link backend and computer with release script running.
SAP uses certificates for secure connection, therefore a certificate from SAP server has to be installed on the machine running KCEC-ERP and on the backend.

Best regards,

Rolf

We use HTTPS all the time (customers want security) and it's fairly simple and straightforward.
It's not the SAP server certificate what you need. You must install the root CA certificate that belongs to the content repository's web server as a trusted root CA. Note that the certificate on the content repository's web server must be valid in every respect (FQDN, expiry date) as the .NET library used by he release script validates everything and throws an error if a problem is detected.
