PPM Support Tip: SiteMinder integration switching from https to http

A new KCS article was published: KM00462394



When attempting to Approve a Workflow Decision Step, URL switches from https to http.

Message in the browser:
"Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?
This webpage contains content that will not be delivered using a secure HTTPS connection which could compromise the
security of the entire webpage.
More info Yes No"

Note: The issue began after enabling Single Sign-on (SSO) Integration with SiteMinder.


Fix mentioned in 9.14.0001 Release Notes:
"PPM Center 8.02 does not always generate HTTP redirects according to server parameter BASE_URL.
To solve the problem, a filter is added to generate redirect URL based on BASE_URL, so any redirect would be sent to the correct target even in a reverse proxy enabled environment. (QCCR1L46348, QCCR1L44935)


Upgrade to latest 9.14 build (9.14.0006 for example) to obtain the fixes in the 0001 build.
