    HI All,


    Has anyone used FORM POst variable in Policy evaluation. I am trying to capture a field from user and pass it to Policy server and have attached it to GET/POST policy . However i am always getting a unresolved. I can see the Form field being passed in the browser using fiddler and other tools.

    Hi Vivek,

    This is a known defect and is currently being worked upon by engineering

    CA Ref : DE280382


    Current Behaviour with FormPost variables:
    FORM Post variables is NOT resolved , when it is not used in expression of a domain policy.
    When Expression is created with FORM Post variable it is being resolved correctly.

    So for FORM Post variables, with expression in Domain Policy flow is working fine but its not working without expression in Domain Policy.


    So, at the moment you can try to use it in the Policy expression as an workaround until SE fixes the issue.

    Thanks for the reply ujwol. I was trying to actually incorporate it in the policy expression and was getting the same result before I started this thread.


    What I am doing is capturing a checkbox value and passing it to Policy server and then in  expressions in my domain I am creating a formpost  variable and trying to evaluate it to a value in the get post policy using expression tab. I hope this is the same thing you are referring to when you say policy expression.


    And before someone asks why am I doing checkbox validation on server side , I need that condition to be evaluated for a subset of users and not everyone.
