Symptoms

Using OHS/Webgate 12.2.1.3 and OAM 11.1.2.3.180116:

After upgrading OHS/Webgate from 12.2.1.2 to 12.2.1.3, all the unprotected resources required login although it should not.


ACTUAL BEHAVIOR:
----------------------
Using the native WebGate in OHS to connect to OAM 11.1.1.9 on another server but after upgrading OHS from 12.2.1.2 to 12.2.1.3, 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
-----------------------
Expected behavior to work as it did in 12.2.1.2 webgate / OHS and no authentication is required for the unprotected resource.

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