Sun OpenSSO Enterprise Policy Agent 3.0 Guide for Sun Java System Web Server 7.0

Preserving POST Data For Web Server 7.0 (Optional)

Only the Web Server 7.0 agent supports POST data preservation. Other web agents do not support this feature. POST data is submitted to Web Server 7.0 through HTML forms before users log into OpenSSO Enterprise. An HTML page containing the HTML form should be in the not enforced list. By default, POST data preservation is disabled.

ProcedureTo Enable POST Data Preservation for the Web Server 7.0 Agent

  1. Login to the OpenSSO Enterprise Console as amadmin.

  2. Click Access Control, realm-name, Agents, Web, and then the name of the agent you want to configure.

  3. Click Advanced, and then Sun Java System Web Server.

  4. For POST Data Preservation, check Enabled.

  5. For POST Data Entries Cache Period, specify a value in minutes, if you want a value other than the default value of 10.

    This value determines the time in minutes that POST data is valid in the Web Server 7.0 cache.

  6. Click Save.

    These values are hot-swappable, which means you don't have to restart Web Server 7.0 after you set them. Any changes done in the Console are not reflected in the agent's local configuration file (and vice versa).
