  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When an X509 token is used as Authentication token, its seen
    that it is only propagated for the first message. For subsequent
    messages the value is empty. Ideally, for every authenticated
    request, the IdentitySourceToken field of properties folder
    should have the token irrespective of the token type(provided
    that the security profile has propagation property set as TRUE).

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users of Integration Bus V10.0/V9.0 using X.509
    authentication token.

    z/OS, MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    When an X.509 token is used for Authentication, it is only
    propagated for the first message. For subsequent messages the
    value is empty.
    
    If the security profile is set to propagate identity then all
    authenticated requests should have a token in the
    IdentitySourceToken field of properties folder, this is true for
    all token types.
    
    There are a number of resource name changes between WebSphere
    Message Broker and IBM Integration Bus Version 9.0. For details

    tools.mft.doc/bb23814_.htm
    

Problem conclusion

  • The product now always propagates an authenticated x.509 token
    when the Security profile has propagation property set as TRUE.
