Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM WebSphere Application Server Version    *
    *                  8.0 and 8.5.5 users.                        *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The session manager incorrectly logs    *
    *                      an exception when a session management  *
    *                      custom property is set to true.         *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When the session management custom property
    InvalidateOnUnauthorizedSessionRequestException is set to
    true, the session manager will invalidate the session when an
    UnauthorizedSessionRequestException is encountered.  Since the
    session is invalidated, logging the following exception is
    unnecessary: SESN0008E: A user authenticated as {0} has
    attempted to access a session owned by {1}.
    

Problem conclusion

  • When the session management custom property
    InvalidateOnUnauthorizedSessionRequestException is set to
    true, the session manager will no longer log an exception.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 8.0.0.7 and 8.5.5.1.  Please refer to the
