1643446 - Non-secure content warning for theme resources


  • You access the portal using a Load Balancer (e.g. SAP Web Dispatcher) or Reverse Proxy (e.g. Apache)
  • You have SSL termination at the load balancer / proxy, meaning that the traffic is HTTPs to the LB, and HTTP from the LB to the portal
  • You are using an AppIntegrator iView to integrate a backend application (e.g. a Web Dynpro or BSP) to the portal
  • You get warning messages in the browser about a mix of secure and non-secure content when calling the application iView
  • If you trace the HTTP request/response traffic, you can see that some theme resources (e.g. css files or images) are requested using HTTP instead of HTTPS
  • A popup may also appear: Session management will not work! Please check the DSM log file for details
