OAM 10g: OSSO Integration Fails with Users Having Special Character In Login Attribute (Doc ID 1155305.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 21, 2016

Applies to:

COREid Access - Version: 10.1.4.2 to 10.1.4.3.0 - Release: 10g to
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

After integrating OAM with Oracle SSO (Oracle Access Manager Integration Guide Part Number B25347-01) a subset of users are unable to authenticate. The SSO logs say it cannot find the user and returns a HTTP-500 Internal Server Error.

This happens when the user has a special character like ":" ,  in the userid that will be passed to the XXX_REMOTE_USER header variable.

However this user can be found when searching in OIDDAS.
