Trying to setup SAML 2.0 SSO for authentication and oracle database for authorization in OBIEE 12c. The database has users and groups defined.

The following is what happens when trying to access OBIEE 12c site :

2) Its correctly re-directed to your custom SAML 2.0 SSO page where you enter credentials
3) Then it redirects to http://<server>:<port>/saml2/sp/acs/post where the HTTP 403 error is received 

The following docs have been followed for steps :
