When attempting to access Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) /cgi-bin/printenv - HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error
Section - 4.4.3 Test Response Headers
Test that Oracle Access Manager sets the response headers as specified, for example by adding the printenv script to your protected resources and accessing the script from your browser as authenticated user. On a WebTier 11g, you will find the printenv script in your $ORACLE_INSTANCE/config/OHS/ohs1/cgi-bin directory. You may create a symbolic link and add this resource to your protected resources. For example:
ln -s ../cgi-bin cgi-bin
chmod 755 cgi-bin/printenv
Steps to Reprodcue after above setup,
1. Access http://webgate-host:port/cgi-bin/printenv
2. User gets redirected to OAM login page
3. Provide user credentials and submit the request
4. After successful authentication, OAM redirects back to http://host:port/cgi-bin/printenv, which results in 500 http response
Note if executing from command prompt ./printenv, or via browser (No OAM invovled) the HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error occurs.
