Appending 'clienttype=tcc' to SGD URL Does Not Work In 5.3

(Doc ID 2353716.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 28, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Secure Global Desktop - Version 5.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In OSGD 5,2 a URL of this tyoe https://<SGD SERVER FQDN>/sgd/index.jsp?clienttype=tcc would result in being offered the JNLP, then open it with Java webstart to use the Java client. This doesn't work any more in 5.3 and instead a URL in the following url is returned alongside a blank webpage: https://<SGD Serevr FQDN>/sgd/resources/jsp/helpertype.jsp?java=false&SGD_Token=very_long_token

Documentation for 5.3 still says this should work (section 6.3.2):


Upgrading from OSGD 5.2 to 5.3.
