Symptoms

Oracle Access Manager 11g (OAM 11.1.2.3.x) Federation - Login Loops When the Identity Provider (IDP) AuthN Scheme has an AuthN Level of 3 or Higher

Issue ...

  • Set the authentication level of the IDP authN scheme that is protecting the webgate resource to anything higher than 2 (for example level 3 or 4)
  • After successful authentication at the IDP, on the OAM side will see a looping behavior happening between OAM server and webgate

 

Working flow ...

  • Configure an IDP authentication scheme in OAM with an authentication level of 2.
  • If you access the webgate resource, it gets redirected to the IDP
  • After authN at IDP, it comes to OAM (SP) and OAM server creates session and redirects to webgate resource
  • Able to access it successfully without any issues as expected.



Changes

Installation of OAM bundle patch 11.1.2.3.190209
