<<< Response data

- In dev_icm of the backend system (or in dev_webdisp, if there is an SAP Web Dispatcher involved):

HTTP response (raw) [10/23598/1]:
HTTP/1.1 307 Temporary Redirect
date: Thu, 16 Feb 2023 13:27:49 GMT
connection: Keep-Alive
content-length: 0
location: https://<hostname>:44300/sap/bc/srt/rfc/sap/zxxxxxxxxxxx
content-type: text/html
Connection Info: role=Server, local=XXXXXX:8000, peer=XX.XX.XX.XX, protocol=HTTP



The affected system mapping in Cloud Connector is using protocol HTTP.

The profile parameter icm/HTTP/redirect_X is set on the Web Dispatcher / backend system to redirect all connections to HTTPS (observation: this is configured by default on HEC-hosted systems!).

If the affected system mapping is already configured to use HTTPS, then additional icm/HTTP/redirect_X parameters might be present and interfering with the communication.
