Customer has ssoCookie:Max-Age="value" configured in an IWA authentication scheme. However, this feature is not working as expected in combination with Form based authentication.

Open browser
browse to website 1 (protected by IWA).
--> Verified cookie was created

Close browser

Open new browser
browse to website 2 (protected by Form-based authentication)
--> No credential prompt. Access was granted
--> persistent cookie automatically gets deleted

Close browser

Open new browser
browse to website 2 (Form-based authentication)
--> prompt for credtential
--> enter userid/password
--> access granted


As mentioned in the OAM admin guide, the parameter ssoCookie:Max-Age="value" only works with Mozilla browsers.
