Error description

  • The wsadmin command addSAMLTAISSO produces a SAML TAI
    custom property called sso_1.sp.loginErrorPage.  The
    addSAMLTAISSO parameter that produces that custom property is
    -errorPage.  The descirption for the errorPage parameter does
    not make it clear that it is setting the
    sso_1.sp.loginErrorPage custom property for the SAML TAI.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Description found for errorPage for     *
    *                      the                                     *
    *                      addSAMLTAISSO admin task is incorrect.  *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The description for the -errorPage parameter for the the
    addSAMLTAISSO admin task is inaccurate.  It says this:
    "Supply URI of resource to redirect if cookie in SP expired or
    user comes to SP without going to IdP first."
    The description should say that it sets the
    sso_id_.sp.loginErrorPage TAI custom property to the value
    provided.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The description for the -errorPage parameter for
    the addSAMLTAISSO admin task is updated to the following text:
    
    "Enables the custom property sso_id_.sp.loginErrorPage with the
    value provided. This custom property specifies the error page,
    IdP login page, or custom mapping class to which an
    unauthenticated client request is redirected."
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 8.5.5.8 and 9.0.0.3.  Please refer to the
