  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • While device SSO is enabled, if two apps use the same security
    test, only one app should need to authenticate.  If one app
    autheticates, the other app functions as expected except
    isUserAuthenticated returns false, and updateUserInfo returns a
    '0' for the isUserAutherticated attribute.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * The WL.Client.IsUserAuthenticated was not functioning        *
    * correctly. It was mapped to a server value that does not     *
    * correctly reflect the authentication status. As a result,    *
    * when using SSO, it returned false even when the user was     *
    * authenticated.                                               *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
