APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The redirect URL generated during forms based login uses the
    service's configured IP address in place of the hostname. After
    the login process, the client is redirected back to the original
    URL with the IP address URL. The end result is that any cookies
    already in the browser's cookie jar for the hostname are not
    forwarded with the final redirect, possibly breaking backend
    applications.
