Issue/Introduction

Question:


When developping active expression with the SDK, adding them in jar and including them in policy server JvmOptions.txt
These java components does not automatically get loaded at policy server startup.
Is it possible to have them start automatically?

Answer:

You can not load jar and classes defined as active responses during startup.
They are loaded during the invocation otherwise the PS would take too much time to start if you have a lot of active response, custom auth scheme and custom code defined.

As a workaround, You can simulate an authentication/authorization by using tools like CURL, by using our siteminder test tool or you can even use other 3rd party tool.
If you need further assistance do not hesitate to contact our CA Services consultant at the usage of those tool fall out of CA Support scope.
