Goal

In the example below the customer is using product CC&B on Platform AIX with Appserver WebSphere. However this will apply to all customers using LDAP authentication for products CC&B, ETM, BI, and RMB.


The customer has configured LDAP authentication to CC&B/WebSpehere. This potentially allows everyone to pass the CC&B login screen, and they just get a 401 Error if they don't have security access to login to CC&B.

This is expected. However, they were suggesting to have a more user friendly message that would tell them why the login failed, instead of a 401 error.

This error also shows when the user logs in and his access is expired (User Group expiry).
