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

Last updated on FEBRUARY 23, 2023

Applies to:

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


On : 12.2.6+ version

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

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.
In Chrome, error: - Requested resource or page is not allowed in this site

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.






Starting with 12.2.6 "Allowed Resources" is a new feature which restrict access to servlet and jsp pages
