Hi,

We are started getting these issues after changing the Saml SSO setting from AD to Azure AD.

(FOC44540) Web Services Request got error. Response Status : 403 ; Reason: Forbidden

Tested this link and it is working.
http://hostname:8080/ibi_apps/rs?IBIRS_action=TEST

We are using POST request and confirmed that CSRF token is generating and the configuration on Admin Console shows CSRF is enforced. Recently we switched the SAML SSO from AD to Azure AD. After that, this is stopped working. Do I need to look anything else on the configuration?

Thanks for your help

Did you check if there is anything in the logs? event.log, websecurity, audit.log?

Are you using the Rest adapter or the WebFOCUS Client rest adapter?

When you see nothing in logs (also check the Tomcat access logs) then it's likely that a firewall is preventing traffic.

Hi Guys,

We faced the same issue and after a meeting with the CLOUD team we figured out there were some network rules issues.
Please look at the firewall rules enforced in your NETWORK as if there is an issue from the WebFOCUS side you should have got something in event.log.

Thanks
