Questions on the Web Server Location Tag Directives used for the WebGate (Doc ID 1382163.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

COREid Access - Version: 10.1.4.3.0 and later   [Release: and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The customer wants the WebGate NOT to contact access server for unprotected URLs.
To do this, we modifed the WebGate configuration like below and it works fine.
<LocationMatch "/confluence/login.action">
AuthType Oblix
require valid-user
</LocationMatch>

<LocationMatch "/obrar.cgi">
AuthType Oblix
require valid-user
</LocationMatch>

The above setting allows the WebGate to reach access server only for /confluence/login.action and all other URLs are bypassed...

Is there any downside to this approach?
