Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM WebSphere Application Server            *
    *                  administrators of OpenID Connect            *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The OIDC TAI only intercepts https      *
    *                      requests when httpsRequired is set to   *
    *                      true.                                   *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:  Install a fix pack or interim fix that      *
    *                  contains this APAR.                         *
    ****************************************************************
    When the OpenID Connect (OIDC) Relying Party (RP) Trust
    Association Interceptor (TAI) provider_<id>.httpsRequired
    custom property is set to true, the TAI will only intercept
    https requests.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The OIDC TAI is incorrectly associating the httpsRequired
    property with the inbound request URL.  The inbound request
    URL should only be affected by the configured filter.
    
    The OIDC TAI is updated continue processing http requests when
    httpsRequired is set to true.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.15 and 9.0.0.11.  Please refer to the
