Why Doesn't WebGate Pass REMOTE_USER To Backend JBoss Application? (Doc ID 1917283.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Access Manager - Version and later
COREid Access - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


An application has been integrated with Oracle Access Manager (OAM) SSO with the following components:

When an OAM-protected JBoss application resource is accessed via the Apache webserver, after OAM SSO login the application fails to display the page because it does not find REMOTE_USER variable available in the HTTP request.

If the following is added to the Apache configuration then REMOTE_USER is set and application access is successful:

RequestHeader set REMOTE_USER %{REMOTE_USER}s

Why is this Apache configuration required?

Why isn't WebGate passing the REMOTE_USER value to the back end JBoss Application Server?
