Bypass Reverse Proxy Setup / Enable direct login to a Gateway Server

Idea ID 1651026

Bypass Reverse Proxy Setup / Enable direct login to a Gateway Server

When activating the reverse proxy, we are no longer able to login directly to a gateway.

We're using reverse proxies with modsec / web application firewall and IDM in front of our gateway servers.
As soon as we enable the Single Sign on Configuration, we can't login to any gateway directly anymore.
A possibility to login directly to a gateway is necessary for
- debugging the modsec configuration
- testing an single gateway server for functionality
- "emergency" login in case of proxy load balancer errors

As the IPs of the reverse proxies are configured in OMi, it should be possible to get a login mask for all requests from other addresses.

Can you check if you have an infrastructure setting called "Manatory Domain" under the "Single Sign-On - Lightweight (LW-SSO)" category? At least in the CDF version, setting that one to "false" seems to fix similar issues.

This sounds like a case for support. Did you follow the High Availability configuration settings from the admin guide? It should work, otherwise please work with support.

Tried to set the "Manatory Domain" option, didn't make a difference for us.

Guess when Identity Management is set, there is no way to bypass it at the moment. The only workaround is to set the Header manually. This allows us to login as any user (just by setting the header and value). From our point of view the IDM settings should only be applied for the configured reverse proxies. Connections from other IPs should get a "normal" login.

We already opened a call for this (SD02045092), support suggested to open an ER.
