Sun OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 Update 1 Release Notes

CR 6244578: New Property Warns Users if Browser Cookie Support is Disabled or Not Available

The new property indicates whether OpenSSO server should check if cookie support is disabled or not available in the user's browser. A value of true causes OpenSSO server to display an error message if the browser does not support cookies or has not enabled cookies.

Previously, if cookie support was disabled or not available on the user's browser and OpenSSO server was not in cookieless mode, authentication for a user failed without any errors. (Actually, authentication was done successfully, but OpenSSO server could not redirect the user to the OpenSSO protected web site.)

To Set the Property

  1. Log in to the OpenSSO Administation Console.

  2. Click Configuration, Servers and Sites, opensso-instance-name, and then Advanced.

  3. Click Add and then specify:

    • Property Name:

    • Property Value: true or false

  4. Click Save.

  5. Restart the OpenSSO server instance.

Note - If OpenSSO server is expected to support cookieless mode for authentication, set this property to false (which is the default).
