APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Verify Action fails with 'certificate not found' although the
    correct certificate is in the validation credential of the
    verify action.
    This can occur if the signed message contains <X509IssuerName>
    and the name of the Issuer contains special characters.
    

Local fix

  • In the Verify Action, set the "Optional Signer Certificate"
    parameter to the appropriate certificate object name.
    Example:  "name: my_cert"
    This forces the Verify Action to find the certificate
    immediately, instead of searching the domain using the
    IssuerName lookup method.
    

Problem summary

  • DataPower might not find a certificate by issuer when the name
    contains special characters.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
