COREid Access - Version: and later   [Release: and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Oracle Universal Content Management (UCM) has been configured for Single Sign-On (SSO) and the UCM site has been protected with Oracle Access Manager with a WebGate installed on the UCM proxy webserver.

The OAM Policy Domain for UCM has been configured with an Authorization Success Action to set REMOTE_USER HTTP header value to the login attribute, for any protected UCM resource.

UCM application access is failing because UCM does not receive any REMOTE_USER value. 

The OAM WebGate oblog.log shows that WebGate is setting REMOTE_USER header variable correctly after successful authorization for OAM-protected UCM resource requests.
