Does OWSM Cache Authentication Results for a Username Token Service Policy? (Doc ID 1633878.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 25, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Web Services Manager - Version 11.1.1.4.0 to 11.1.1.7.0 [Release 11gR1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

WebLogic plus OWSM.

A Web Service is secured with a username+token based OWSM policy such as oracle/wss_username_token_service_policy.

The users accessing the Web Service are stored in a non-default LDAP provider configured as an Authentication Provider.
Caching is enabled for this non-default LDAP provider.

Despite the caching settings, for each Web Service request carrying a username token, there is an LDAP bind.
