2296894 - sap.Logon.changePassword does not work with SAML authentication on SMP 3.0 - SMP


A Kapsel based application targeted to Windows 8.1 with SMP 3.0 SP08 is using SAML Authentication which also uses
"refreshSAMLSessionOnResume": "skip" feature to allow user logon in offline mode during application restart.
In order to handle the use case of password change, the application will show a logon screen to allow user to enter new credentials.
The application then calls sap.Logon.changePassword() API.
A call to sap.Logon.changePassword() does show a standard 'Change Password' screen and the API call is successful.
But afterwrads the authentication cookies are not reset.
