Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 10.3.6 to
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When configuring SAML SSO in WebLogic Server (by following blog Steps to configure SAML 2.0 with WebLogic Server), and while testing, we receive an HTTP 404 error in WLS playing the Identity Provider role (IDP).

After enabling DebugHttp and DebugSecuritySAML2Service debug flags, we can observe below entries in the log file:

Thanks to the debug flags, we have noticed that getServiceTypeFromURI() fails to identity the login URL as a valid redirect after authentication as it contains the <JSESSIONID>.

Also, it has been observed that issue does not occur on the Identity Provider initiated flow but only on the Service Provider initiated flow.
