    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: OpenID Connect Relying Party does not   *
    *                      support authorization endpoint URLs     *

    ****************************************************************
    The OpenID Connect (OIDC) Relying Party (RP) Trust Association
    Interceptor (TAI) returns a 401 if the
    provider_<id>.authorizeEndpointUrl contains query parameters.
    For example:
    https://example.com/oidc/endpoint/authorize?name=auth
    

Problem conclusion

  • The OIDC RP TAI is updated to support query parameters on the
    value for the provider_<id>.authorizeEndpointUrl OIDC
    TAI property.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.0.0.15, 8.5.5.14 and 9.0.0.8.  Please refer to the
