OAM 11gR2: Can't Get OAM 11.1.2 Webgate To Support Passthrough Authentication (Doc ID 1519437.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Access Manager - Version 11.1.2.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Oracle Knowledge Base article 1499348.1 indicates that the "Passthrough" Challenge Parameter is supported in OAM 11.1.2, but I can't get it to work. I have installed the OHS 11g WebGate, and I have enabled it as a Detached Credential Collector.

I am able to reconfigure the Authentication Scheme to use the bundled login forms (/oamsso-bin/login.pl) without passthrough. So I know that the WebGate is working, and my authentication scheme is working. But when I update the scheme to use my own login form, and add "Passthrough:Yes" to the challenge parameters, but WebGate does not seem to do anything: My login form acts just like there was no WebGate in front of it, and I receive no OAM cookies from any transactions through it.

My own login form is reverse proxied to the server via the WebLogic proxy configured on the OHS server.
