    On Demand Configuration (ODC) does not honor Session Management
    custom property HttpSessionCloneId, used to override application
    server clone IDs, resulting in broken session affinity by
    Intelligent Management enabled web servers and On Demand
    Routers.
    

Problem conclusion

  • On Demand Configuration (ODC) has been modified to properly
    honor Session Management custom property HttpSessionCloneId
    allowing Intelligent Management enabled web servers and On
    Demand Routers to maintain session affinity when the custom
    property has been used to override application server clone
    IDs.
