Oracle Access Manager acting as an Identity Provider (IdP), posts all groups on one line in SAML Response to Service Provider(SP) instead of multiple lines when acting as a Federation Proxy.

  • Using federation proxy
  • The Identity Provider (IdP) returns multi-valued groups to fed proxy
  • These groups are set in OAM session
  • The Service Provider (SP) attribute profile in Fed proxy sets the above saved session value in SAML response
  • As the session attribute is serialized as a string, the Fed proxy returns the attribute as a ':' delimited string.
