Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Application and User Management >> Common Tasks.
  2. Select 'Configure Single Sign-On'.
  3. From 'My System' download SP Metadata and forward it to IDP.
  4. Configure IDP manually.
  5. In C4C, upload file and activate Single Sign-On.
  6. Save.
  7. Error occurs.


The SAMLResponse coming from the Identity Provider is being sent to the Single Logout Service (SLO) from the Service Provider and not the Assertion Consumer Service (ACS).


Modify the Identity Provider configuration to send the SAMLResponse to the ACS and not the SLO.

Example: Change the endpoint from "http(s)://<hostname>:<port>/sap/saml2/sp/slo" to "http(s)://<hostname>:<port>/sap/saml2/sp/acs".
