The Internal Flow Option Was Deprecated In OAG (Doc ID 2224893.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 27, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle API Gateway - Version 11.1.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In OAG the "Authorization Code Flow" filter can be used in the "Authorize Transaction" filter when "Use internal flow" is selected. When using the internal flow after user registration for the application, using an HTML form and OVD LDAP, OAG extracts the "username" only. In the same filter, the OAG version uses the field and this returns the full DN of that user.

How is it possible to get the same result in as was seen in

"user_id" : "cn=21981131479,dc=user,dc=corporate,cn=users,dc=tim,dc=com,dc=br",
"user_id" : "21981131479"

Steps required to reproduce the problem: Authorize Resource Owner:

Select one of the following:

Use internal flow

This uses the internal API Gateway flow to authorize the Resource Owner. This is the default setting.

Note: Previous versions of the API Gateway enabled a user to call a policy to authorize the resource owner, and store the subject in a message attribute. This field is used to provide backwards compatibility with configurations using that option. If an authenticated user is not found in the message, the filter automatically uses the internal flow and returns the specified login form.
