Bug description

A CDSSO flow using, for example, J2EE Agent 3.5.1 with an initial URL of around 400-500 bytes long can potentially result in a goto URL of over 2000 bytes, in which case the default value of org.forgerock.openam.redirecturlvalidator.maxUrlLength is exceeded.

Resulting in the user being redirected to their profile page.

Is there any reason not to increase this value ?


It will also help to have an error level log in isRedirectUrlValid()

if (url.length() > MAX_URL_LENGTH) {
+ " The url was length {} which is longer than the allowed maximum of {}",
url.length(), MAX_URL_LENGTH);
return false;


Set manually using org.forgerock.openam.redirecturlvalidator.maxUrlLength
