OAM 11g: Autologin Fails When Using OIM Forgot Password Link With Backurl Parameter (Doc ID 1554741.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 29, 2019

Applies to:

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


Auto-Login fails when users use the Forgotten Password link in a custom Oracle Access Manager 11g login page.

After submitting the new password, the custom OAM SSO login page is displayed instead of the application home page as expected.

OAM has been integrated with Oracle Identity Manager (OIM) for Password Management.

The following document has been referenced to create the Forgot Password link and the backurl parameter is set so that the user is redirected back to the application homepage after resetting the password:
