Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

COREid Access - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


An application is successfully protected by Oracle Access Manager (OAM)

However if login, logout then relogin as different user is performed in the same browser session, the user details from the original login are still used by the application.

The problem reproduces with both IE and Firefox browsers.

The HTTP Header trace shows that the OAM ObSSOCookie is set to "loggedout" after logout and relogin creates a new ObSSOCookie value for the new user.

Yet the application still displays the original user details after the new login.

Steps to reproduce

1. Access
2. OAM login page is displayed: submit UserA credentials.
3. Application page is displayed at with message "Welcome UserA".
4. UserA clicks logout link in application.
5. The application landing page is displayed at UserA seems to be logged out successfully.
6. In the same browser session, UserB accesses the protected application at
7. OAM login page is displayed: submit UserB credentials.
8. Application page is displayed at with message "Welcome UserA".
