    Hello all,
    I'm facing one problem after upgrade CA PPM 14.3 to 14.4 P2.
    I'm not able to access the web site using only the /niku web context.
    Because of this, I can not use sso.jsp under /niku context to do Single Sing On.
    Anyone had this problem ? There was a change in the permissioning of niku?
    See examples bellow.

     

    1. Using the load balance server without context works

    http://loadbalanceserver:8080/ redirect to http://loadbalance:8080/niku/nu#action:homeActionId

    2. Using the load balance server with /niku context not work.
    http://loadbalanceserver:8080/niku redirect to friendly url configured in NSA http://friendly url/niku/nu#action:union.externalError&c3RhdHVz=NDAz

     

    Thanks.

    Hi Maurico,

     

    Yes there is a change and its been discussed before too and in order to make the context secured we did the same. 

     

    Issue with Custom SSO Logout page in V14.2 

     

    Hope this helps

    Hi Suman,

     

    But I'm not using one customize logout page. I'm using the default sso.jsp file to login.
    When we do one request to http://<servername>/niku/sso.jsp?username=<someuser> are getting the "Erro 403 - Forbidden". But the user is authenticated, because when the user is putting /niku/nu the application works fine.

    I think have some problem in bellow redirect after 14.4 version.

    "
    if( initialized )
    {
    response.sendRedirect( "app?action=homeActionId" );
    }
    else
    {
    // =======================================
    // CUSTOM CODE to go elsewhere on error...
    //
    response.sendRedirect( "app" ); // Default is just show the login page.
    "

     

    Thanks.

    Hi Maurico,

     

    You cannot keep anything under Niku/webroot folder as its protected, so you need to either host your login page to different app server and point the same.

    Hi Suman,

     

    But it's the instruction shared by CA.
    Take a look in the sso.jsp attached.
    There isn't any note about this change in release notes or change impact documentation.

    Hi Maurico,

     

    It was in the past and needs to be re evaluated in 14.3, we don;t allow keeping any code within webroot this was done to secure our product.  We document only what we provide as a feature. Also we raised this as a feature so please vote for it.
