Sample Code

Triggering Authentication Actions After the ObSSOCookie Is Set

You can cause authentication actions to be executed after the ObSSOCookie is set.

Typically, authentication actions are triggered after authentication has been processed and before the ObSSOCookie is set. However, in a complex environment, the ObSSOCookie may be set before a user is redirected to a page containing a resource. In this case, you can configure an authentication scheme to trigger these events.
