Oracle Access Manager (OAM) Bundle Patch 8 (BP08) includes the fix for <> SPECIAL CHARACTERS IN URLS NEED TO BE ENCODED in BP08 which provides an option to exclude specific attribute field values from being encoded.

After installing BP08 and configuring fields to be excluded from encoding, if an OAM workflow contains mandatory fields and by mistake one of the mandatory fields is not entered then a pop-up warning is shown and all special characters in fields before the missing mandatory field get encoded.

Another symptom of this problem is error "User Password and User Password confirmation do not match" when setting a user password if the password contains a special character (for example an ampersand) and the User Password field is excluded from encoding.


Identity Server has been patched to BP08 and fields configured not to be encoded.
