Sun Java System Access Manager Policy Agent 2.2 Release Notes

Policy-Based Response Attributes

Starting with this release of web agents, a new method is available for retrieving header attributes based on Access Manager policy configurations.

Policy-based response attributes take advantage of functionality now available in Access Manager that involves querying policy decisions. In previous versions of Access Manager, header attributes could only be determined by the list of attribute-value pairs in the agent configuration. Now, header attributes can also be determined by Access Manager policy configurations. With policy-based response attributes, you can define attribute-value pairs at each policy definition as opposed to the method used in prior versions of Access Manager, which only allowed policy decisions defined globally in the agent configuration.
