P6 EPPM Web Application Configured for Single Sign-on (SSO) Over SSL Redirects from HTTPS to HTTP Protocol (Doc ID 2194523.1)

Last updated on JUNE 11, 2019

Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR

After configuring the P6 EPPM web-based applications for Single Sign-On (SSO) with Oracle Access Manager (OAM) and testing a connection to the web application over SSL (mainly around the SSL connection with the SSO redirection), the web application is redirected to the SSO authentication scheme (for example, form-based authentication) by making an https://<SSO host<:<SSL Port>/obrareq.cgi? request; but after the authentication scheme is satisfied (for example, entering username/password for a form-based authentication scheme), redirection to the OAM server by making an /obrar.cgi? request over non SSL occurs (for example, http://<SSO host>:<Port>/obrar.cgi?), causing the SSO authentication process to fail and prevent redirection back to the P6 EPPM web-based application.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR

The browser should not redirect from HTTPS to HTTP protocol during the SSO authentication process.

 

The issue can be reproduced at will using the following steps:

  1. In a web browser, enter a P6 EPPM web URL protected by SSO.
  2. Redirection to OAM Login page occurs.
  3. OAM Server authenticates/authorizes the user's request.
  4. Observe the reported issue.
