Oracle Access Manager 11g (OAM 11.1.2.3.x) Federation - Access to any Tunneled Application URL, After Abandoned, Detached Credential Collector (DCC) Authentication Fails in Redirection

Scenario 1

Request Flow of Google Apps:
1. user access gmail URL,provide his email id.
2. redirected to OAM via reverse proxy ( OHS wits DCC acts as reverse proxies- /oam, /oamfed are set as tunneled URLs).
3. Now that /oamfed is tunneled, request is directly sent to OAM login page(ECC). Login is successful and redirected to Gmail. In here, SSO with other apps(DCC based) is not working.

 

Scenario 2

User is logged into DCC application when he tries to access tunneled application.
1. Open a new browser, access a DCC application URL. You will be redirected to login page. Do not submit the credentials here.
2. In the same browser, access any tunneled URL viz gmail or blackboard. You will be redirected to login page. Now submit the credentials to login. After successful login user is redirected to DCC application. Ideally it should go to gmail or the requested fed application.
