Siteminder issue with BookMarked URL

    Some of our customers are using book marked URL to access our application. After successful authentication, those customers are getting 500 error or internal server error. We know that it is due to the book mark contains encrypted agent name and after key-rollover this agent name becomes invalid. Please let me know how to fix this issue?

    One solution is educate the customer which URLs to bookmark. They should not be bookmarking the Login Page. They should be bookmarking the TARGET URL only. This behavior occurs when Customer bookmark the Login Page because at times that is the first page that they see. They never see the redirection that occurred and the query parameters that get appended.


    The other solution is change the Login Journey OR URL, such that the initial page is not a redirect. Example an unprotected Landing Page with a login widget OR a login link. This way the Users bookmark the Unprotected landing page, which would be a static application page URL.
