Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server Liberty  who are enabling TAI and    *
    *                  invokeForUnprotectedURI is set as true.     *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: After updating to 19.0.0.4, SESN0008E   *
    *                      errors started occurring when a TAI is  *
    *                      enabled with                            *
    *                      invokeForUnprotectedURI=true.           *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Due to a code change in fixpack 19.0.0.4, custom TAIs are not
    driven to authenticate unprotected resources even when the
    property invokeForUnprotectedURI=true is set.  As a result, if
    those resources try to access the session information, the
    attempt will fail with an SESN0008E error.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix

  • In order to mitigate the issue, set continueAfterUnprotectedURI
    as true in trustAssociation configuration element in
    server.xml.
    The complete solution which resolves original APAR PI91146
    intended to fix will be provided by APAR PH15089.
