Error description

  • Firmware 4.0.1.x
    
    When trying to configure the WebService Proxy with more then two
    XPath expression, they found out that after saving the first 2
    expressions and adding a third object an backslash too much will
    be added to the total expression.
    
    
    Steps to recreate:
    
    When trying to configure a WebService Proxy with a Verify Action
    in one of the rules of the policy and try to add more than two
    XPath expressions a backslash '\' being added to the total
    expression making the expression invalid.
    A sample expression may look like this:
    /*[XPATH]\\+/*[XPATH]+/*[XPATH]
    Adding a third expression would lead to such an expression:
    /*[XPATH]\\+/*[XPATH]+/*[XPATH]
    
    With only two XPATCH expression the request will be processed
    without any error. Adding further expressions will result in the
    requests being rejected.
    

Local fix

  • The current workaround is to manually recreate the xpath
    statement from scratch and insert this in one step.
    

Problem summary

  • DataPower customers using the Web GUI multi step editor will
    not be able to add extra XPath statement expressions correctly
    to the verify processing step "XPath Expressions Which Must be
    Signed" parameter
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
