Login to Sites with HTTPS/SSL traffic causes improper redirects or links to HTTP on WebSphere Application Server
Last updated on JUNE 01, 2018
Applies to:Oracle WebCenter Sites - Version 188.8.131.52.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
When using an IBM WebSphere 184.108.40.206 application server and an Apache web server we have a strange behaviour when attempting to login to WCS Sites. The original URL includes "https" in the request (https://[host]/[sites context]). This URL is redirected by Sites to the CAS login url but the "service" parameter refers "HTTP" only which is wrong because the request was initiated using "HTTPS" protocol:
https://[host]/[cas context]/login?service=http%3A%2F%2F[host]%2F[sites context]%2Fwem%2Ffatwire%2Fwem%2FWelcome
Where is the configuration associated with this URL redirection ?
