Symptoms

Customer is doing JWT Bearer Grant Flow to get OAuth Access Token from JWT Assertion

This is the JWT Bearer request:

POST /oauth2/rest/token HTTP/1.1
Host: login-tst.atradiusnet.com:443
X-OAUTH-IDENTITY-DOMAIN-NAME: SIT_JET_WebGateDomain
:
Authorization: Basic <ENCRYPTED_PASSWORD>
cache-control: no-cache
Postman-Token: 527e5b8c-2c3b-40bc-a1c1-76848305a5f0
grant_type=JWT_BEARERscope=SIT_JET_OIDCWebGateRS.openidassertion=<OPENID_ASSERTION>

Which results in:

{
"error": "invalid_grant",
"error_description": "Invalid Request"
}

… and the error from OAM is :

[SRC_CLASS: oracle.security.am.oauth2.grant.handler.JWTBearerGrantHandler] [SRC_METHOD: processGrant] Exception occurred during JWT Bearer Grant handler flow.[[java.lang.NullPointerException
