APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Even when the HTTP import binding is configured to route the
    HTTP request to a proxy with basic authentication, the request
    fails with the following error:
    
    HTTP/1.1
    407 Proxy Authentication Required
    HTTP CONNECT request genereated by HTTP Import binding does not
    contain Proxy-authorization section
    Proxy-authorization: Basic ....
    

Local fix

  • NA
    

Problem summary

  • HTTP proxy authentication is not implemented in the HTTP binding
     of SCA import. As a result, the authentication fails when HTTP
    authentication enabled in proxy server even though
    authentication aliases are set up for the HTTP import binding
    configuration.
    
    PRODUCTS AFFECTED
    IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) Advanced
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.5.0 that adds support for
    HTTP and HTTPS proxy server authentication.
