  • You configured your custom SAML Identity Provider according to the product's documentation in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC).
  • You want to deploy the application directly in your SAML IdP "launchpad" (IdP initiated).
  • Service Provided initiate works as expected.
  • You connect to SAP Analytics Cloud and are redirected correctly to your SAML Identity Provider.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud
  • Custom SAML 2.0 Identity Provider

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Access IdP Login Portal / Homepage
  2. Access SAP Analytics Cloud Application
  3. Observe "HTTP 400 - Bad Request" error when redirected to authn.<region>.hana.ondemand URL
