PI33795: OVERRIDE SESSION MANAGEMENT SETTINGS ON APPLICATION FAILS TO WORK WHEN APPLICATION STATE IS CHANGED FROM INACTIVE TO VALID

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When we override session management and have a custom session
    cookie setting for an application, say CUSTOMSESSIONID, the
    custom cookie is not used when the application is run after its
    
    state is changed from inactive to validation mode. Instead, the
    
    default cookie name, JSESSIONID, is used. This will cause
    breaks in session affinity whenever an application is tested
    across active and validation modes.
    

Local fix

  • Once the application state is changed from inactive to
    validation mode, "Override session management" settings have to
    
    be reconfigured appropriately
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  Users of IBM Websphere Application Server   *
    *                  Full Profile versions 7.0, 8.0 and 8.5.     *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Application and Web Module level        *
    *                      Session Management Configurations are   *
    *                      lost when a web module is mapped to     *
    *                      another server.                         *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When a web module is remapped to a new server in a
    multi-server environment, any Session Management Configuration
    settings that have been overridden at the Application or Web
    Module level are not carried over after the remapping occurs.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A post-deployment task has been added to automatically re-add
    the Session Management Configuration settings when a module is
    remapped. This is activated by setting the Deployment Manager
    JVM Custom Property:
    com.ibm.ws.session.updateSessionConfigOnEdit. This post
    deployment task is currently targeted for inclusion in
    Websphere Application Server Fix packs 7.0.0.39, 8.0.0.11 and
    8.5.5.6.
