Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM WebSphere Application Server and        *
    *                  OpenID Connect Relying Party TAI            *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The OIDC TAI does not handle URL        *
    *                      fragments properly                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:  Install a fix pack or interim fix that      *
    *                  contains this APAR.                         *
    ****************************************************************
    When a request is made to a resource protected by the OpenId
    Connect (OIDC) Relying Party (RP), if the request contains URL
    fragments, those fragments are lost during the authentication
    process.
    For instance, if a request is made to
    http://abc.com/action.html#one, after login, the user will be
    redirected to http://abc.com/action.html.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The OIDC TAI is updated to preserve URL fragments on requests
    made to a protected resource.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.0.0.14, 8.5.5.13, and 9.0.0.6.  Please refer to the
