APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When eTAI is configured to use iv-user header only and the
    WebSEAL user name has a space in it, by default WebSEAL will
    encode the space as %20. eTAI will attempt to process this
    header value without URL decoding it, this will obviously fail.
    

Local fix

  • un the WebSEAL junction with the -e utf8_bin option, which
    changes the way WebSEAL sends header values so as to not URL
    encode them.
    

Problem summary

  • As per the WEBSEAL default settings, IV-USER header is encoded.
    ETAI was not decoding the IV-USER header before using it. Added
    the code to decode IV-USER header.
    These fixes will be available on Integration factory with next
    official eTAI image.
    

Problem conclusion

  • As per the WEBSEAL default settings, IV-USER header is encoded.
    ETAI was not decoding the IV-USER header before using it. Added
    the code to decode IV-USER header.
    These fixes will be available on Integration factory with next
    official eTAI image.
