IC87266: POST-AUTHENTICATION BANNER SHOWS BEFORE AUTHENTICATION PROCESS HAS COMPLETED (NOT AFTER AUTHENTICATION PROCESSES).
Direct links to fixes
Closed as program error.
SFTP user session does NOT see the Post-Authentication Banner AFTER logging in, the message is seen PRIOR to the Authentication actually happening. Similarly, the SFTP user does NOT actually see the Pre-Authentication Banner prior to authentication, however, it is ONLY exhibited in the debug logs on the client side as the Remote software version .
The SSP SFTP Post Authentication Banner appears before authentication is complete. SSP allows the administrator to supply a Pre-Authentication Banner Text and a Post-Authentication Banner Text in the SFTP adapter advanced tab. However, the pre-authentication banner never appears in a client session, and the post-authentication banner appears prior to the prompt for password on the client session. The banners are working as designed, but are named relative to server authentication, which comes before client authentication in an SSH session. The pre-authentication text allows the administrator to hide the SSH toolkit name, if desired. The post-server authentication text allows the site to display some legal verbiage on the client screen before they are fully authenticated.
Changed the names of the fields on the SFTP adapter advanced tab from "Pre-Authentication Banner Text" to "SSH Server Identification Text" And "Post-Authentication Banner Text" to "Post-Server Authentication Banner Text". The text in the Post-Server Authentication Banner Text is presented to the client before they authenticate themselves to the server.
