  • A web site is protected by Oracle Access Manager (OAM) and WebGate. The user's request to a protected web site will be handled by a same Authentication Scheme, but the HTTP response for OAM redirection may be difference depending on URL query parameters.
  • When the request URL is short, the client browser that requested the protected web site is redirected to the OAM server by HTTP response code 302.
  • When the request URL is long, the client browser that requested the protected web site receives the HTTP response code 200 and redirects the OAM server by POST method, not GET method;


Why does the different response happen?
