OEG To OES Authorization Inserting "Vordel Principal: " Before Username (Doc ID 1504680.1)

Last updated on APRIL 22, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Enterprise Gateway - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


While trying to delegate authorization to Oracle Entitlement Server (OES) from Oracle Enterprise Gateway (OEG) using the steps
in, and after creating
the policy in OEG, the authentication fails on the 11g Authorization filter.

A test client that performs the same lookup was used.

Comparing the two, you will see that the SSM is being passed as subject "Vordel Principal: weblogic" and fails; whereas the test client passes the subject "weblogic" and succeeds.


The OEG log file shows the following:

Nov 7, 2012 5:21:29 PM processDecide
FINE: authIdentity=Subject:
    Principal: Vordel Principal: weblogic
 runtimeResource=peoplesoft/AccountNumbers/AccountNumber runtimeAction=retrieve appContext={}


 While the test client shows the following:

Nov 7, 2012 4:47:11 PM processDecide
FINE: authIdentity=Subject:
    Principal: weblogic
 runtimeResource=peoplesoft/AccountNumbers/AccountNumber runtimeAction=retrieve appContext={}
