OAM 12.2.1.4 - NullPointerException After Adding "-Doracle.oam.EnableExtraSAMLAttr=true" (Doc ID 2757820.1)

Last updated on MARCH 09, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Access Manager - Version 12.2.1.4.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Federation environment - OAM is the SP

OAM 12.2.1.4.200909

IdP is sending a large number of attributes in SAML Assertion and OAM store them in the OAM session (more than 40 attributes).

Initially Customer encountered the "Oam Session supports only 40 string type properties" error:

......
[2020-10-29......] [<oam_server_name>] [ERROR] [][oracle.oam.engine.session][APP: oam_server] [partition-name:DOMAIN] [tenant-name: GLOBAL] Oam Session supports only 40 string type properties
.......



For overcoming this error, was added parameter "-Doracle.oam.EnableExtraSAMLAttr=true" in the setDomainEnv.sh under EXTRA_JAVA_PROPERTIES




After this parameter was added, the NullPointerException was thrown in "getEncLongerStringPropertiesWithExtraSAMLAttr()":
