For a Distributed Authentication UI server deployment, Access Manager 7.1 patch 3 (CR 6700722) includes the new com.sun.identity.authentication.destroySessionAfterUpgrade property to prevent old sessions from being destroyed after a session upgrade. Values for this property can be:
true (default): Old sessions are destroyed immediately after a session upgrade.
false: Old sessions are not destroyed after a session upgrade.
Note. This new property applies only to a Distributed Authentication UI server and not to Access Manager 7.1 server.
To prevent sessions from being destroyed after a session upgrade:
Add this new property with a value of false in the AMConfig.properties file. For example:
Restart the Distributed Authentication UI server.
