Information in this document applies to any platform.


Users are unable to complete SSO login using SAML 1.x and Artifact method with Oracle Identity Federation (OIF) Identity Provider (IdP).

The Service Provider (SP) federation product redirects the user to an SP SSO error page after the user submits credentials in the IdP login page.

Steps to reproduce

1. In a new browser session, issue a request IdP initiated SSO for SAML 1.x with artifact method.

e.g. https://oifidp.oracle.com/shareid/saml/ObSAMLTransferService?DOMAIN=dom1&METHOD=artifact&TARGET=https%3A%2F%2Fsphost.oracle.com%2Fpages%2Fhomepage.jsp

2. User is redirected to the IdP authentication engine login page and submits valid credentials for the IdP domain.

3. The SP SSO error page is displayed.
