    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Users running WebSphere plugin v8.5     *
    *                      may want allow secure connection        *
    *                      failures to use nonsecure connections.  *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When using WebSphere Plugin V8.5 or higher, if a secure
    request arrives and a secure transport is defined, the
    connection will fail if a secure connection can not be made to
    the application server.  This behavior can be changed by
    setting the "useInsecure" custom property as described in
    PM85452. This custom property was previously only settable
    when generating the plugin configuration in WebSphere v8.5 or
    higher but with this apar, the customer property can be set
    and picked up when generating the configuration in WebSphere
    Application Server v7 or v8.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This custom property was previously only settable
    when generating the plugin configuration in WebSphere
    Application Server V8.5 or higher but with this apar, the
    custom property can be set and picked up when generating the
    configuration in WebSphere Application Server V7 or V8.
    NOTE-This custom property is only recognized (and
    only needed) in web server plugin v8.5 and higher.
    
    Set the custom property UseInsecure=true on the Servers >
    Web Servers > Web_server_name > Plug-in properties > Custom
    properties page.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.33 and 8.0.0.9.  Please refer to the
