Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM WebSphere Application Server users of   *
    *                  OpenID Connect                              *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The OIDC TAI                            *
    *                      sessionCacheTimeoutMinutes property     *
    *                      is yielding seconds, not minutes        *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:  Install a fix pack or interim fix that      *
    *                  contains this APAR.                         *
    ****************************************************************
    The units for the sessionCacheTimeoutMinutes property for the
    OpenID Connect (OIDC) Relying Party (RP) Trust Association
    Interceptor (TAI) is documented to be in minutes.  However, the
    setting appears to be in seconds.  For instance, if
    sessionCacheTimeoutMinutes is set to 30, the cache times out
    in 30 seconds instead of 30 minutes.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The OIDC TAI is updated to use the sessionCacheTimeoutMinutes
    setting properly (in minutes, not seconds).
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.16 and 9.0.5.0.  Please refer to the
