Last updated on SEPTEMBER 18, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 12.2.1.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
- The bug fixes associated with patches herein are included in version 12.2.1.3

Symptoms

A user is not able to log in to the WebLogic Server (WLS) 12.2.1 Administration Console through Internet Explorer (IE) 11. The user is redirected back to the login form again. This issue does not happen when using Firefox (FF) or Chrome.

Changes

This issue occurs if the context path of WLS Administration Console has been changed.

The detailed steps are:

<Patch 22517628> was given for this but there continued to be an issue when configuring 'Configuration Audit Type' to value 'Change Log and Audit':

The user can login to the Enterprise Manager (/em) first and use it to enter the WLS Console, (/console), but certain features will cause errors, such as 'Lock & Edit' ability and 'Security Realms' link. Further, using the Enterprise Manager to undo the 'Configuration Audit Type' change and restart the server. However this does not fix the Administration Console issues.
