At customer we are conducting an innovation project to experience and validate the applicability of SAP NetWeaver Gateway and Sybase Unwired Platform (SUP) for exposing SAP workflow tasks management to mobile devices. The App has 2 integration dataflows with SAP backend:
- Retrieve the list of open tasks for logged-on user
- And per task, propagate task decision to complete the SAP workflow
This approach worked correct when initially SUP excluded, and with requests direct invoked against SAP NetWeaver Gateway. Upon including SUP in the system landscape, we received error '403:Forbidden/Location'. Through HTTP sniffing I detected that the SAP session was not maintained over multiple http requests originating from SUP context. SAP Support analysis on the submitted OSS Ticket identified the inability to preserve the complete session cookie as a problem in the SUP 2.1.1 OData layer, and advised us to upgrade to SUP 2.1.3. This indeed resolved the issue.
