Information in this document applies to any platform.


Oracle Access Manager (OAM) BP06+ or is not setting Authentication and/or Authorization Success HTTP header variables or cookies for resources protected by an Anonymous authentication scheme.

The WebGate-protected application needs to receive some some HTTP header variables from OAM when public / anonymous pages are accessed. When these HTTP header variables are not found the application generates errors.

The problem is not specific to WebGate running on any particular web server.

The problem reproduces with latest Bundle Patch installed.

The HTTP Header trace for public application page access shows that OAM is not setting any (anonymous) ObSSOCookie for access to the resource.

Steps to reproduce

1. Access the OAM-protected application. Access a public page that does not require login.
2. Application generates an error because the expected HTTP Header variables are not set.
