HTTPS Calls to HTTP Proxy Service Through Apache WebServer Fails (Doc ID 1506048.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 07, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Service Bus - Version 11.1.1.3.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When using apache to access a proxy service from OSB, get a http 500 error "Cannot process inbound request to endpoint ProxyService [proxy service name] over https".
The apache webserver (edge) running the weblogic plugin, terminates the SSL connection and then connects to Weblogic/SOA over HTTP. The service is configure to run over HTTP and not HTTPS.
Internal use of the proxy service works as expected.


HTTPS --> [Apache WL Plugin]-- HTTP --> [Weblogic SOA / OSB]  = http 500 error
HTTP --> [Apache WL Plugin] -- HTTP --> [Weblogic SOA / OSB] = OK
HTTP --> [Weblogic SOA/OSB] = OK

If check "Require HTTPS" on the OSB service transport , it is processed fine
HTTPS --> [Apache WL Plugin] -- HTTP --> [Weblogic SOA / OSB] = OK
