OHS Header Directive not Honored When WebGate Redirects for Authentication (Doc ID 2207640.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 02, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Access Manager - Version 11.1.2.2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Headers set through header directives in the OHS httpd.conf are not set on the 302 redirect to the OAM server for authentication.  For example, the following line appears in the httpd.conf file
  

Header set MyHeader "somevalue"

When the resource is unprotected or when the user is already authenticated, the header appears in the HTTP response.  However, when the user is unauthenticated resulting in a 302 redirect to the /oam/server/obrareq.cgi or /obrareq.cgi URL, the header is not set in the response.
