SNC support including X509CERT are required for JALE/JBAPI integration with Google Cloud (GCP) and SAP S4/HANA installations
We are moving our on premise SAP ECC installations to SAP S4/HANA on GCP off-premise. The GCP integrations are requiring SNC (secure socket) as well as certificates via the X509CERT field for security purposes.
These fields are not supported in the existing ITX 10.0x JALE adapter, but are available in the saprfc.ini file that can be references with the -d (destination) adapter command. Using this we have been able to send and receive non-SNC data with the on premise SAP ECC. In order to test the SNC components, we need support of the X509CERT field from the saprfc.ini specification. According to support this will be an enhancement.
Given the move of many customer installations to the cloud as well as hard requirement for secure transactions, this is very much as needed feature to maintain the product.
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
To secure JALE communications between on-premise ITX 10.0 installations and SAP S4/HANA hosted in Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
