Error description

  • The customer is using Cognos Security (IntegratedSecurityMode=5)
    for user authentication in TM1 and TM1 Web.?   ?Due to the
    customer's global IT policies, all web applications and portals
    must use CA SiteMinder for user authentication, thus they
    configured Cognos Security to use a Custom Java Authentication
    Provider (CJAP) to access CA SiteMinder. ?   ?One of the
    customer's global IT policies (covering all web applications and
    portals) dictates that each logon (to a web application or
    portal) creates a SiteMinder session cookie which is invalidated
    by the logoff.  To invalidate the SiteMinder session cookie
    every logout must call a dedicated logout page defined by CA
    SiteMinder.  To achieve that the application's HTML logout page
    may execute a redirect to the CA SiteMinder's HTML logout
    page??In Cognos BI you can specify a Custom Logout Page (calling
    CA SiteMinder's logout page which invalidates the SiteMinder
    session cookie) in the configuration file system.xml?   ?As such
    a feature does not exist for TM1 Web, the customer requested an
    enhancement to add this feature to TM1 Web.?   ?In a future
    release of TM1 Web it shall be possible to customize the logoff
    in TM1 Web, the URL invoked by the Logoff button, that it
    invokes instead of the default URL another URL pointing to a
    Custom Logout Page which invalidates the SiteMinder session
    cookie. ?
