Pinned topic Websphere portal 8 proxy issue , 403 BMWPX0006E:

‏2012-05-10T20:46:43Z |
Hi ,

we have been trying to get nitro portlet working on websphere portal 8. We did the proxy configuration to point to the nitro applications. Also made th epolicy file changes and ran configengine.sh ,
the error in firebug is
403 BMWPX0006E: The URL you tried to access through the proxy is not allowed.

Heres the policy file

<policy url="{$nitro_url_policy}" acf="none">
<actions>
<method>GET</method>
<method>HEAD</method>
<method>POST</method>
<method>PUT</method>
<method>DELETE</method>
</actions>
<cookies>
<cookie>LTPA</cookie>
<cookie>LTPA2</cookie>
<cookie>JSESSIONID</cookie>
<cookie>LtpaToken</cookie>
<cookie>LtpaToken2</cookie>
<cookie>SimpleToken</cookie>
</cookies>
<headers>
<header>x-lfn-url-callback</header>
<header>User-Agent</header>
<header>Accept*</header>
<header>Vary</header>
<header>Location</header>
<header>Content*</header>
<header>Authorization*</header>
<header>X-Method-Override</header>
<header>Set-Cookie</header>
<header>If-Modified-Since</header>
<header>If-None-Match</header>
<header>X-Server</header>
<header>X-Update-Nonce</header>
<header>X-Requested-With</header>
<header>com.ibm.lotus.openajax.virtualhost</header>
<header>com.ibm.lotus.openajax.virtualport</header>
</headers>
</policy>

Also tried using <policy url="http://server.domain.name:10039/nitro/*" acf="none"> and <policy url="*" acf="none"> instead of <policy url="{$nitro_url_policy}" acf="none">

Also note that LDAP is configured in WAS console and we are able to login using the ldap users in Websphere portal console as well as nitro console. We are trying to add the portlet using the adminstrator id which is not in LDAP , but is present in the users of WAS8.

Any pointers will be helpful. Thanks!

    Are you receiving any exceptions on the target server related to authentication? If not can you provide the URL pattern that is being rejected?

    This is the error in the logs.

    OK, I figured it out.

    For me, this was an issue with Case Sensitivity of the LTPA Token.
    WAS/Portal was using "LTPAToken" and "LTPAToken2" but the
    proxy-config.xml was set to "LtpaToken" and "LtpaToken2".

    Fixed, restarted and verified.

    Try Login in to Portal first, e.g.
    http://www.server.com/wps/portal

    Then try the Forms url through the Proxy, e.g.
    http://www.server.com/wps/proxy/http/www.server.com/forms

    You should not see a login screen or any errors.

    Hope that helps someone else!

    Did you ever get this resolved as well?  I am having the same issue, tried to change the LTPA names, but still have the same issue.

     

    Thanks!
