Known Issues and Limitations in OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 Update 1 Patch 2

OpenSSO Enterprise cannot create URLStreamHandler for WebLogic Server (CR 6867442)

The OpenSSO Enterprise AMURLStreamHandlerFactory cannot create the URLStreamHandler for WebLogic Server, because WebLogic Server has preset the value for the java.protocol.handler.pkgs system property to|weblogic.utils|weblogic.utils|weblogic.utils. If you try to access a remote WebLogic Server instance from the Console Session UI, OpenSSO Enterprise dumps an error log in the CoreSystem file.

The fix for CR 6867442 adds the new opensso.protocol.handler.pkgs property.

Although this problem occurred on WebLogic Server, the fix affects all web containers. If you have java.protocol.handler.pkg in your setup or if you are planning to use java.protocol.handler.pkg, add this new property as follows:

  1. In the OpenSSO Administration Console, click Configuration, Servers and Sites, opensso-instance-name, and then Advanced.

  2. Click Add and then enter:

    • Property Name: opensso.protocol.handler.pkgs

    • Property Value: com.sun.identity.protocol

  3. Click Save.

Workaround. Manually enter the goto URL as protocol://openssohost:port/console and re-request the login page. For example:
