2950846 - Authentication error when CPI has more than one worker node


When the SAP CPI (Cloud Platform Integration) has two or more worker nodes enabled for a tenant, an SAP NetWeaver ABAP based system may receive an "HTTP/1.1 403" authentication error when sending data through the CPI.

The issue occurs randomly.

One known integration scenario where the issue can occur is: SAP on-premise CAR system -> SAP CPI -> SAP Marketing Cloud

An example of HTTP log from the CPI showing the issue on the CAR scenario above is:

Node1: http_access_<node1>_<date>
<ip address> (<ip address>) - <S-user on CPI> [<date and time> +0000] GET /gw/odata/SAP/REPLICATE_SALES_TRANSACTION_FROM_CAR_TO_SMC;v=1/$metadata HTTP/1.1 200 59090 195 <CPI tenant> -

Node2: http_access_<node2>_<date>
<ip address> (<ip address>) - <S-user on CPI> [<date and time> +0000] POST /gw/odata/SAP/REPLICATE_SALES_TRANSACTION_FROM_CAR_TO_SMC;v=1/ImportHeaders HTTP/1.1 403 796 253 <CPI tenant> -

-> there is always a GET followed by a POST
-> the GET always works (HTTP/1.1 200)
-> the POST fails (HTTP/1.1 403) if it is not processed by the same worker node that processed the GET
