[RESTOutbound] Response From Outbound Call : The Input String For Decryption Is Invalid (Doc ID 2708061.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 09, 2020

Applies to:

Siebel CRM - Version 19.9 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When attempting to host a custom external REST service in Siebel's Tomcat AI instance and access that service via HTTPS the following error occurs:

The input String for decryption is invalid

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. create a java based REST service (not A Siebel service at all). 

2. Use Siebel's Tomcat AI container to deploy the custom service .

3. Import the json for that service in Siebel Tools and create a proxy business service.

4. Invoke the proxy business service, having as target URL the hostname and port of Siebel's own AI Tomcat instance where the custom and non-Siebel REST service was deployed.
