Login is not Successful to Spaces after Integrating with OSSO - Error in Log: "NO USER IN SESSION" (Doc ID 971762.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version 11.1.1.1.0 to 11.1.1.5.0 [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The following documentation was used to configure WebCenter Spaces with OID and OSSO:

30.3 Configuring Oracle Single Sign-On (OSSO)
Oracle® Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.5.0)


After the configuration when accessing WebCenter Spaces then it redirects to the SSO login page as expected. When providing the credentials the login is performed and it redirects back to WebCenter Spaces, however, the user is not actully logged in, there is still a Login link on the Spaces landing page.

The following error message is logged to spaces.out:

<Nov 25, 2009 1:21:43 AM PST> <Warning> <> <BEA-000000> <SSOFilter: SSO Tokens Present - No User in Session>
<Nov 25, 2009 1:21:49 AM PST> <Warning> <> <BEA-000000> <SSOFilter: SSO Tokens Present - No User in Session>
<Nov 25, 2009 1:21:51 AM PST> <Warning> <> <BEA-000000> <SSOFilter: SSO Tokens Present - No User in Session>

The SSO login was really successful, as when going to SSO homepage in the same session and clicking on the Login link it logs in without any further credential challenge.
