Issue/Introduction

Users are using cert or forms authentication.

When we run a query on the ss_sessionvar5 table, there are only rows for users using certificates. Users authenticating with forms authentication do not show up in the query.

Environment

Release : 12.8.06a

Cause

This table is used by the "Persist Authentication Variables" feature (under scheme setup in the authentication scheme). The authentication schemes that will write to the table are:

  1. Custom schemes
  2. SAML authentication schemes
  3. SAML SP --> IDP Partnership
  4. OpenID authentication schemes
  5. X.509 certificate schemes
  6. JWT Authentication schemes

Resolution

Other auth schemes will not write these entries because they do not have the variables that are written to that table.
