Tech Tip : CA Single Sign-On :CA Access Gateway : Redirect Response with Auth/Az Web services

By Ujwol posted 11-21-2016 07:41 PM



How to configure redirect response (OnAuthAccept/OnAccessAccept) with CA Access Gateway Auth/Az Web Services.



  • Web Agent : 12.52 and above
  • OS : ANY


1. Configure Redirect Response normally as you would for normal web agent.


2. Test AZ web service using Soap UI (or any other SOAP client)

As this is a web service request (SOAP, REST), CA Access Gateway can NOT do normal agent redirect (302 redirect) .So, instead what it does is it it preserves the configured redirect response in a custom HTTP header SM_REDIRECTURL (if LegacyVariables = YES) / SMREDIRECTURL (if LegacyVariables = No) and returns it as a SOAP response. From there it will be up  to the web service client to decide what to do with it.
