User returning to login page

Users are being returned to the login page repeatedly, despite entering credentials which are known to be valid otherwise.


There are two main reasons why this might happen:

1. The user is authenticating, but is not listed correctly via the policy to be authorized for the target resource.

2. The SiteMinder authentication scheme being used, is hosted in a different cookie domain than the target application, and a cookie provider is not in use.


SiteMinder version: any


Review the SiteMinder policy to assure the user is configured to be authorized, and verify the authentication scheme utilizes a login page within the same cookie domain.
