Symptoms

On : Oracle Access Manager 11g R2PS3 (OAM 11.1.2.3)

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Issue: HTTPS traffic being redirected to HTTP after OAAM install.

Oracle Adaptive Access Manager was recently installed and integrated with Oracle Access Manager and Oracle Identity Manager as per the OAM Deployment guide.

This has been observed only recently after the OAAM install.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
HTTPS traffic remains HTTPS

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
See the HTTPS to HTTP redirect in the below situations:
1) When access the identity console URL (through Load balancer), it redirects to the OAAM login page but http, which causes a connection error.
2) While authenticating in OAAM login page with username and password, it redirects to the OAAM register questions page but http URL again which causes connection failure
3) After authenticating with OAAM and logging into identity console, when logout is clicked, redirects to http URL which again cause failure.
4) When connecting to the test protected web page ( created for testing as mentioned in deployment guide) , it redirects from https://<OAM_HOSTNAME>:<OAM_PORT>/oaam_sso.html to http://<OAM_HOSTNAME>:<OAM_PORT>/oaam_server/login.do , which causes connectivity error.
