    PI88044 adding callback handling that forcibly deletes SAF
    credentials. During extreme workloads it could result in
    collisions between threads doing the delete and threads
    performing authorization checks for the same user.
    The function provided by PI88044 may still be desirable for
    some customers. This APAR restores previous default behavior.
    It also allows customers to benefit from PI88044 function by
    setting security custom property:
    com.ibm.websphere.security.platform.cache.eviction=true
    

Problem conclusion

  • Forcing SAF credential deletes will no longer occur, unless
    the following property is set:
    com.ibm.websphere.security.platform.cache.eviction=true
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.17 and 9.0.5.2.  Please refer to the Recommended
