EE-2181

Webservice Profile Lookup Issue – Addressed issue causing removal of profile data. The following describes this issue in more detail.

A rare scenario occurs in the web service when the lookup for a user's membership succeeds, and in the same request, the profile lookup times out. The user does not receive an error and it allows the user to proceed in the login workflow.

If the login workflow included a multi-factor method (MFA), a different error message would display, related to not finding any MFA in the user's profile.

If the login workflow is only username and password, then the login would succeed and save an empty profile for the user. This issue clears all writable values in the user profile.

This issue first occurred after a previous hotfix (EE-2253) to reduce the web service timeout to a reasonable value (5 seconds).

Web service timeouts usually occur when the login to a realm has been idle for too long and suspends itself.

The hotfix prevents the user profile from clearing out by not allowing the user to continue in the current login request during a timeout. If the timeout is due to an idle realm, the second attempt normally succeeds and the user can continue the login workflow.
