Java SSO Does Not Lock Account After Failed Attmepts

(Doc ID 1310822.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Containers for J2EE - Version: and later   [Release: AS10gR3 and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Java SSO has been configured to use "Number of Login Attempts" equal to 3, and after login fails three times the user receives the message:

"You have exceeded the maximum login attempts allowed. Please contact the application administrator or wait 120 minutes to retry."

But if the user closes and re-opens the browser, it allows the user to continue to continue login attempts.

How can the account be locked after the user reaches the maximum number of login attempts, even after the user closes and re-opens the browser?
