REST: http POST requests returning 409 response when updating assets via a load balancer (Doc ID 1592967.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 03, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Sites - Version 7.6.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When trying to create or update an asset using REST multiple times in a short amount of time, sometimes an HTTP 409 response code is returned.

The environment is clustered with multiple nodes, and the REST updates are submitted through the load balancer.

When pointing to one dedicated server instead, it will never receive an HTTP 409 response.
