Bug description

Saving changes on "CTS Token Store" tab clears saved bind password. Password field is on "External Store Configuration" tab.

Password field is 'blanked' when config is viewed, but this is not in any way obvious when saving changes on another tab.

How to reproduce the issue:

  1. Set up AM and working external CTS configuration
  2. Via admin console: Configure->Server Defaults-> CTS
  3. On the 'CTS Token Store' tab, click 'Save Changes'
  4. Restart OpenAM

The result is AM server cannot create a connection to CTS on reboot, it will not be able to create any sessions, including for admin console access.

Expected Behaviour

CTS bind Password should not be overwritten

Saving the contents of one tab should not affect another

Work around

CTS bind password must be re-entered when saving any changes to CTS configuration in the admin console.

Could this be a well disguised duplicate of OPENAM-11705?

This bug is a symptom of OPENAM-11834
