In a SAML SSO environment, customer observed 403 error intermittently. It happened when the user was switching between the source/target domains. For example, the user logs in to domain A (source) and is authenticated. A SAML token is issued and the user should be able to access resource on domain B (target) without re-authenticating (SSO). However, sometimes users receive a 403 error (access denied) on domain B.
