APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • For OAuth, in the case of reverse proxy, the authorization URL
    doesn't reflect the real URL and a reverse proxy is not able to
    rewrite the value.
    

Local fix

  • For the workaround, as the content form template is
    customizable, the developer can update the template to reset
    the authorization url to target server on page load.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM WebSphere Application Server            *
    *                  administrators of application servers       *
    *                  using OAuth                                 *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: With OAuth, a user may not be           *
    *                      redirected to a reverse proxy server.   *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:  Install a fix pack that incluses this APAR  *
    *                  and update the installed OAuth app,         *
    *                  WebSphereOauth20SP.ear, from the            *
    *                  (WAS_HOME)/installableApps directory..      *
    ****************************************************************
    In a WebSphere OAuth authorization process, a user may not
    be redirected to the requested reverse proxy server after
    authorization is granted.  The user is redirected to an HTTP
    server directly.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The WebSphere Application Server is updated to redirected the
    user to the requested URL.
    
    When a fix pack containing this APAR is installed, the fix
    will not be active until the installed OAuth ear,
    WebSphereOauth20SP.ear, is updated from the
    (WAS_HOME)/installableApps directory.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.29, 8.0.0.7 and the fix pack following
    8.5.0.2. Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
