    I need to be able to give access management through SIteMinder with reverse proxies to an app that would use WebSockets.

    I already saw that SiteMinder is not been compatible with WebSockets (ref) contrary to Layer 7 APIM or PAM.
    Since SiteMinder is mandatory for me, what would be your advise to be able to use WebSockets with it ?

    This might be one of the things you found but as you stated Siteminder does not support Websockets or SecureReverse Proxy.

    This post mentions a need for an enhancement to be opened but I could not find that enhancement.  That post was from 2014 and we have moved to a new community system since that time.  I am not aware of a way around this.  You might want to open an SSO case as well.  If not, I also recommend you open an "ideation" ( on the top toolbar).  Thank you.

    Hello Scott,

    Tx for your reply. As suggested, I will open a CA case to get help on how to set up a siteminder design that would get websockets working.
