Last updated on JUNE 06, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Access Manager - Version 11.1.2.3.171017 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Request Flow

  • SSO is SP-Initiated
  • No attributes are specified in the request
  • SP Partner Entity in OAM configuration references an Attribute Mapping Profile. The attribute mapping profile specifies a number of attributes flagged with "Always Send".
  • When OAM sends back the SAMLResponse, the attributes that does not have a value are still sent but with xis:nil="true":

 

Is there a way to configure OAM Fed to not send such "null" attributes?
