Last updated on MAY 09, 2017

Applies to:

Information in this document applies to any platform.
This EBS OAM OID instance has been working successfully for years.

The EBS OAM OID SSO Login was working fine and then after no known changes to the environment started getting the following error:
"URL validation failed. The error could have been caused through the use of the browser's navigation buttons ( the browser Back button or refresh,
for example). If the error persists, Please contact system administrator."

OAM authentication is successful because the success banner is seen before the error displays.

Using the AppsLocalLogin URL the authentication is successful and does not display the URL validation failed error message.
