Symptoms

AuthPlugin not getting invoked in failure scenario
  
 
  For example, you have the following step orchestration:
  
                    Success             Failure
  StepUI        StepUA              Fail
  StepUA        Success             StepUI2
  StepUI2       Success             Fail
  
  With the above setup, you would expect on authentication failure (StepUA), the plugin status will be returned failed and StepUI2 will be invoked. However with 11.1.1.5.3 version, StepUI2 never gets invoked when authentication fails. In the logs, you see that it throws an exception when authentication fails and the plugin status never gets returned.
