PH11186: HTTP inbound channel custom properties 'trustedheaderorigin' and 'trustedSensitiveHeaderOrigin' do not work properly on Z/OS

Download


Abstract

HTTP inbound channel custom properties 'trustedheaderorigin' and 'trustedsensitiveheaderorigin' do not work properly on z/OS

Download Description

PH11186 resolves the following problem:

ERROR DESCRIPTION:
On z/OS systems, the HTTP inbound channel custom properties 'trustedHeaderOrigin' and 'trustedSensitiveHeaderOrigin' are not honored even if set properly.  Because of this, the private header processing controlled by those properties cannot be enabled.                                                       

LOCAL FIX:
None                                                           

USERS AFFECTED:
All z/OS users of the HTTP channel in IBM WebSphere Application Server

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
HTTP inbound channel custom properties 'trustedHeaderOrigin' and 'trustedSensitiveHeaderOrigin' do not work properly on Z/OS.

RECOMMENDATION:
None

PROBLEM SUMMARY:
On z/OS systems, the HTTP inbound channel's custom properties 'trustedHeaderOrigin' and 'trustedSensitiveHeaderOrigin' are not honored when set properly.  As a result, the HTTP inbound channel does not process a subset of WAS-specific headers sent by proxy servers, despite how these properties are configured.

PROBLEM CONCLUSION:
The configuration code for these properties has been corrected.                                                                
The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix packs 8.5.5.16 and 9.0.5.0.
