Google Search Appliance (GSA) Crawler Does not Redirect to Protected Resource After Oracle Access Manager 11g (OAM) Authentication/Authorization (Doc ID 2218664.1)

Last updated on JUNE 20, 2023

Applies to:

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


GSA is being redirected to the OAM server, but not being sent back to the content server after authentication/authorization.
This is causing the Search appliance to recognize the redirected URL as "excluded - not part of crawl pattern".
Authenticating/authorizing is occurring, but cannot index the content.

  • url_before_redirects: http://<CONTENT_SERVER_HOST>/<URI>?
  • url_after_redirects: http://<OAM_SERVER_HOST>/oam/CredCollectServlet/WNA?bmctx=<VALUE>&spnegotoken=string&challenge_url=/oam/CredCollectServlet/WNA&request_id=<REQUEST_ID>&authn_try_count=0&locale=en_US&resource_url=http://<CONTENT_SERVER_HOST>/<URI>
  • Why is the crawler not being redirected back to the content server URL?
  • Is this the expected behavior?
  • Can we redirect the crawler back to the original content servers URL after authentication/authorization?
