SITEMINDER

Issue/Introduction

Customer has an application which opens a report in an iframe.  This application is protected by Siteminder via IWA authentication.  When the user requests the report, the iFrame opens and shows no content.  If the user opens a new tab and then refreshes the report, the content is displayed.  How can we get the report to appear the first time?

Cause

The application is not opening the iFrame in such a way that the existing browser session is shared.

Environment

Release : All

Component : SITEMINDER

Resolution

Whether an iFrame shares the current session or not is up to the application code and browser.  The SSO system cannot affect this.
