Using OHS/Webgate and OAM

After upgrading OHS/Webgate from to, all the unprotected resources required login although it should not.

Using the native WebGate in OHS to connect to OAM on another server but after upgrading OHS from to, it is prompted to authenticate just by landing on the main page that is listed as unprotected in the OAM configuration.

When changing the /** URL in OAM from using the Unprotect-Public Resource Policy to Excluded then no authentication is required.

Expected behavior to work as it did in webgate / OHS and no authentication is required for the unprotected resource.

There is a workaround by changing the resource from unprotected to Excluded.
