IT19943: HTTP HEADER PARSING PROBLEM

Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When custom HTTP headers are parsed on DataPower, they might be
    combined with other HTTP headers depending on the format of the
    custom header. For example, a header with mismatched double
    quotes could cause this behavior.
    
    This malformed header would be viewable in the probe or in the
    variables used to access the incoming headers to the service.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Affected are all customers whose HTTP headers contain an odd
    number of double quotes. Such headers will be read incorrectly
    for internal processing.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
