Issue/Introduction

 

Web Agent is unable to process SMSESSION cookie and trace log shows
message as "SMSESSION cookie is custom from a third party and not
accepted".

 

Cause

 

Session cookie was generated by a custom SDK agent but the agent that
is consuming/validating the session cookie didn't have the proper
configuration to handle the custom cookie.

 

Environment

 

CA Single Sign-On (SiteMinder) Web Agent

 

Resolution

 

Set AcceptTPCookie to YES in the Agent Config Object (ACO) for all the
agents that will be validating the cookie that was generated by custom
SDK.

Note that:

- Session spec in the session cookie will have some information to
  identify how this session was created (either by SDK or Web Agent).

- The Agent uses this information along with the AcceptTPCookie
  setting to validate a cookie that was generated by a custom SDK.

- In a multi Agents environment, AcceptTPCookie must be set to YES in
  all agents that need to validate the cookie that was originally
  generated by SDK.
