Login Redirection Going On An Infinite Loop Due To Using A File Based Policy In A Clustered Portal Application (Doc ID 1620451.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 10, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version 11.1.1.5.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When accessing the home.jspx page of a Custom WebCenter Portal application, it redirects to login.jspx and then redirects to login.html and this goes into an infinite loop. There is a similar issue that results in the redirect ending in a 404 (see <NOTE:1438815.1> After Restarting WebCenter Portal Managed Server, Some Pages Return HTTP-404 Error Page).

In the custom portal managed server access log the following is displayed:

  1. login.html redirect to login.jspx.
  2. login.jspx redirect to adfAuthentication.
  3. adfAuthentication redirects to login.html and loop back to step 1.

In the custom portal managed server diagnostic log, messages similar to the following display when the looping occurs:

[NOTIFICATION] [] [oracle.jps.authorization.provider] [tid: [ACTIVE].ExecuteThread: '0' for queue: 'weblogic.kernel.Default (self-tuning)'] [userId: anonymous] [ecid: xxxxxxx] [APP: xxxxxxx] Subject Subject:[[ privilege NA resource //app/policy/xxxxxxx/null/null result ABSTAIN
