WebLogic Server not encoding the right logout URL when integrated with OSSO Plugin
Last updated on NOVEMBER 05, 2016
Applies to:Oracle Weblogic Server - Version 10.3.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Problem happens on every single console that implements a log out button, however this note covers only WebLogic Server Administration Console. It is necessary to point out that WebLogic Server is not in charge of encoding the return URL for each deployment running on it, but is an application responsability to return the proper header.
The following is the architecture used:
OHS ==> OSSO ===> WLS Backend
WLS Plugin version is:
$ strings ./ohs/modules/mod_wl_ohs.so | grep -i plugins
WebLogic Server Plugin version 1.1
What has been detected is that inbetween the redirect, the encoding of the URL is not properly being done.
What gets received by the browser is this URL (for example when logging out from the Admin Console)
