Forms Login Fails Only With Federation OAM Module (Doc ID 1924649.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Identity Federation - Version 11.1.2.2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Access to Oracle Forms using OAM Identity Federation in SP mode is failing because OAM is not setting the user GUID value when FederationScheme/FederationPlugin.

The forms application log shows error "[URI: /forms/frmservlet] unable to obtain user credentials; redirecting to Delegated Administration Services" and Forms redirects back for OSSO login again, causing looping in the
browser.

A simple /cgi-bin/printenv test shows that the HTTP_OSSO_USER_GUID header is not set after federated SP SSO.

The problem does not reproduce with LDAPScheme - HTTP_OSSO_USER_GUID is set after login and Forms access is successful.
