Symptoms

IDP-initiated SSO is failing, with Oracle Identity Federation (OIF) 11.1.1.5 as Service Provider (SP) integrated with Oracle Access Manager (OAM) 11g using 3rd party Identity Provider (IdP).

When IDP-initiated SSO is requested, after login to the IdP an OAM error page is displayed with message in red:

System error. Please re-try your action. If you continue to get this error, please contact the Administrator.

The OAM managed server log shows that OAM 11g is generating the following error when attempting to process a URL-encoded resource:



Steps to reproduce

1. Issue the request for IdP-initiated SSO to the 3rd party IdP in a browser session.
2. Submit IdP domain credentials when prompted for login.
3. The OAM error page is displayed with "System error. Please re-try your action. If you continue to get this error, please contact the Administrator." in red.
