Custom Login Module Does Not Work


Can someone give me some suggestions on what I should look at to fix the following error. I created jaas custom login module. Within the module I authenticate against an active directory. I've put many trace statements throughout the login module code. So I can actually follow everystep of the way through the login process. The user authenticates correctly and in the commit() method of the login module, the security principal is created and added to the principals and true is returned from the method. Everything looks like it worked correctly... but the user doesn't actually get into the portal. The login screen is redisplayed. This login module is the only login module in the stack being used to authenticate. According to the tracing, everything should of worked. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should look at?

    Hi Keith,

    just out of curiousity, why did you create a jaas module for this, instead of using the out-of-the-box module?

    • We are also getting this same problem with NW04 SP14. Previously our login module was working when we were using SP12, and after the upgrade to SP14 we found our login module was not allowing passwords to be changed.

      We then decided to try (on sp14) remove our login module from the 'ticket' policy in visual admin, and try using the default login module supplied by SAP - this doesn't work either when the users password needs changing. We didn't have this problem when we were running with SP12, so it looks like some change in SP14 broke the password change capability.
