Error description

  • When you try to connect to IBM Process Center from IBM
    Integration Designer, Integration Designer might indicate that
    incorrect credentials were entered. This issue might occur
    during the authentication process when a cookie was rejected
    because the domain attribute contains dots, which are not
    allowed according to the cookie specification. As a result,
    Integration Designer is redirected to the Process Center login
    page and the connection fails.

Local fix

Problem summary

  • When Integration Designer connects to Process Center, it can
    appear as though the user is not authorized when a Process
    Center cookie contains dots in the domain attribute.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM Integration Designer V8.5.7.0 that
    sets the HTTP compatibility to be equivalent to most web
    browsers and, therefore, does not reject the cookie.
    
    On Fix Central (http://www.ibm.com/support/fixcentral), search
    for JR56494:

    the installed version to the fix pack level, and your platform,
    and then click Continue.
    2. Select APAR or SPR, enter JR56494, and click Continue.
