Mobile Web Applications Server, Mobile Applications related issues






Oracle Mobile Web Applications user login attempts fail with the following error:

'Authentication Failed'

After the error occurs, the User Account is locked.

If the Profile Option Signon Password Failure Limit = 3, it is easy for the Users to reproduce this as the Keys of the Mobile Device are small which cause typos to be more common then not.

Setting the profile to a higher limit provides more attempts before user accounts are locked.

Steps to Reproduce the issue:
Attempts sequence
1. (wrong password)
2. (wrong password)
3. ( correct password and login success)
4. (wrong password)

On the 4th attempt the User Account becomes locked as the Failure Counter is not being reset to zero '0' after a successful login.


 Applied 2018 April CPU patches.
