Login Fails Using Oracle Webcenter Spaces External URL With J_security_check Authentication Error: "GET /webcenter/j_security_check HTTP/1.1" 403 (Doc ID 1479784.1)

Last updated on MARCH 07, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When trying to login to WebCenter Spaces using an external URL (SSL enabled OHS, a reverse-proxy) , the login fails with an authentication error.

The apache access_log shows the following error:

  "GET /webcenter/j_security_check HTTP/1.1" 403

Also, the browser header shows that some of the content for the url is accessing non-ssl content.

However, when logging into the WebCenter managed server directly (WLS_Spaces using port 8888), users are able to login without issues.
