Simpler ISAM Authentication Service URLs

In order to clean up the instantiation URLs generated by the authentication service, you can use a ISAM HTTP transformation rule.

I’ve just completed two examples of this.

Remove PolicyId static prefix:

No static Prefix

This transformation removes the need to have a long static prefix at the beginning of the URL query string parameter you call to instantiate a Authentication Policy.

urn:ibm:security:authentication:asf:

Such that the URL used to call it can look like

https://<webseal>/mga/sps/authsvc?PolicyId=password

instead of:

https://<webseal>/mga/sps/authsvc?PolicyId=urn:ibm:security:authentication:asf:password

 

URL based instantiation – no query string:

Query String Free instantiation

This transformation allows you to call the authsvc with a URL with no query strings.

Such that a request to authsvc can look like:

https://<webseal>/mga/sps/authsvc/recaptcha

instead of:

https://<webseal>/mga/sps/authsvc?PolicyId=urn:ibm:security:authentication:asf:recaptcha
