    Why set_user is not called when using Secure Maps?

    user497649

      Hi,

       

      I am using the latest Oracle Maps (11g ps6 v11.1.1.7.1) and I am trying to support authentication to display different content to the users.

      I want to do this using cookie authentication. I've set the configuration as the documentation indicates, and I see my cookie being read in the logs:

      FINEST: User name stored in cookie [MON_USER] : francis

       

      The problem I have is that the set_user procedure of my package is not called, even though the clear_user is called at the end of the request. I have an insert statement in my procedure, I am not relying strictly on the logs.

      FINEST: package web_user_info.clear_user called.

       

       

      Anybody know if this is a bug or if there is a way around? Or have been able to make it work? I have the impression I've tried everything, even changing the name of my package & cookie to be the same as in the documentation.

       

       

      Thanks.
