3336845 - Can we convert OAUTH certificates in successfactors?

Symptom

You are implementing an integration using oauth and your integration requires a certificate in a format different from the .pem file that we provide in Manage Oauth 2.0 Application.

Based on this you would like to verify we there is any standard possibility to export the certificate already in the desired format instead of exporting in .pem and converting in an external tool. 

Environment

  • Successfactors OAUTH 2 configuration

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Follow the steps on the KBA 2850646 - How to register for OAuth 2.0 authentication - SuccessFactors Integrations 
  2. After registering the x.509 certificate, note that the only format that is downloaded by default is .pem

Cause

Expected behavior

Resolution

In SuccessFactors we currently support downloading the certificate only in .pem format.

If you wish to convert the format, an external tool will need to be used.

Although this is not supported, you can still suggest this as an enhancement request.

Please refer to the session see also for the steps on how you can suggest ideas for SAP products.
