Opened: Feb 20, 2018
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

When BIG-IP as OAuth AS has missing OAuth Profile in the Access profile, the error log is not clear. It shows an error indicating "OAuth mode is not set", instead of showing "OAuth Profile is not configured".

Impact

Confusing error message that leads to delay in troubleshooting the OAuth configuration

Conditions

This occurs when BIG-IP is configured as OAuth AS, however, the access profile is not configured with OAuth profile

Workaround

The error "OAuth mode is not set" means thats the OAuth Profile is not associated in the Access Profile of the Virtual acting as BIG-IP OAuth Authentication server. An OAuth Profile need to be configured in the Access profile of the virtual acting as BIG-IP OAuth AS, in order to avoid this error.

Fix Information

None
