Web API that calls onPremises system with client certificate

SvenGlöckner 396 Reputation points


we need to connect from Azure to on-premises SAP system using a custom client certificate. How can we install the certificate in App Service?
Would there be another way to connect from Azure to any on-premises system using our own certificate?
I'm thinking of Azure App Service Hybrid Connections.

    Hi @SvenGlöckner ,

    See Use a TLS/SSL certificate in your code in Azure App Service on how you can upload the certificate and use it in your code. If your API is running on a Linux app service, and you're loading the certificate as a file, then make sure you include the password on load; otherwise, the usage of the certificate may error.

    As for using Hybrid Connection, as long as you can directly access the on-premises database for your SAP system, then this also is a viable option.
