Unable To Access Custom JSP Page Outside Of EBS Oracle Framework (Doc ID 2716040.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 30, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Applications Framework - Version 12.2.7 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 12.2.6+ version

When attempting to access a jsp outside of EBS menus
the following error occurs.

ERROR
-----------------------
This error (HTTP 403 Forbidden) means that Internet Explorer was able to connect to the website, but it does not have permission to view the webpage.
or
In Chrome, error: - Requested resource or page is not allowed in this site


STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1) migrated a custom jsp from a prior EBS release (let's assume "hello_world" jsp) and placed in OA_HTML.
2) Turned profile option "Allow Unrestricted JSP Access" to yes

3) Added the jsp name to $APPL_TOP/fnd/12.0.0/secure/custom_resources.conf
4) the jsp was added as a EBS menu item


now we perform two test cases

In EBS, using the FWK menu, it opens with regular URL -
URL : - http://<host.domain>:8040/OA_HTML/RF.jsp?function_id=57057
No error.

Trying to open the jsp page directly outside of EBS integration (ie simply going to browser url field and entering the jsp with server url)
URL : -  http://<host.domain>/OA_HTML/hello_world.jsp
it does not open, it gives an error.
