PM76571: DISABLE JSESSIONID COOKIE EXPIRY DURING LOGOUT AND IMPERSONATION

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • WebSphere Portal default behavior during logout and
    impersonation is to invalidate the HTTP session in WebSphere
    Application Server as well as to expire the browser
    JSESSIONID cookie by setting (Expires=Thu, 01 Dec 1994
    16:00:00 GMT). This will force the browser to delete the
    JSESSIONID cookie.
    
    With this APAR, the portal logout/impersonation behavior is
    now configurable so that the logout and impersonation process
    will still invalidate the HTTP session, but will not
    revoke/expire the JSESSIONID cookie. The default behavior is
    unchanged (the cookie will be expired!).
    
    To change this, use the WAS Admin console:
    - Environment -> Resource Environment Providers
    - WP AuthenticationService -> Custom Properties
    - add new property:
    jsessionid.cookie.expire=false (default value = true)
    - save, synchronize and restart servers
