SAML fails on APM SAML IdP after receiving the SAML ArtifactResolve Request, and needs to extract Artifact data from sessionDB to build the assertion. An error is logged: -- err tmm[24421]: 014d1211:3: ::ee23458f:SAML SSO: Cannot find SP connector (/Common/example_idp) -- err tmm[24421]: 014d0002:3: SSOv2 plugin error(12) in sso/saml.c:11864


SAML may fail on APM SAML IdP using artifact binding.


The 'session-key' in the sessiondb includes a colon ':' in its value.



Fix Information

The system now handles this occurrence of 'session-key'.
