How to create single sign on certificate for Service Market Place(SMP)?

This article answers following queries:

  • How to create single sign on certificate for Service Market Place?
  • How to apply for an SAP Passport in Service Market Place?
  • What is the use of configuring SAP Passport?





Basis administrator logins to Service Market Place (SMP) regularly to perform various activities like sap note search, raising an Oss message, creating/maintaining s-users, open connection to SAP and downloading patches etc.

We encounter a situation like SMP prompts to authenticate multiple times. It is very time consuming/cumbersome process, as we have to key in s-user id and password whenever we perform any action. Remembering s-user id is a challenge as it would be like S followed by 10 digits.

Even if some of the browsers facilitate “remember password” option, it won’t serve the purpose as system prompts multiple times to enter credentials.

To simplify this process there is a concept known as “single sign on” for SMP. If this is configured in a browser, then SMP won’t prompt to authenticate always and it uses single sign certificate instead. This saves lot of time and effort for a basis administrator.

Please follow below process to configure single sign on certificate for Service Market Place (SMP)
