When trying to log on/register a user to a External Site encounter a Java error similar to the following:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Control character in cookie value or attribute.
SuccessFactors Learning Management System (LMS) - All Supported Versions
Reproducing the Issue
- Log in to LMS as Admin
- Go to System Admin > Application Admin > Sites > Add New
- Create a Site ID that contains a Special Character (such as umlaut characters ä , ö , ü , ß , é or *, @, | ) and Save
- Try to Log on to the External Site or Register a new User on the site and the error appears
This is caused by special characters in the Site ID
Create a new Site ID with no special characters therefore eliminating the possibility of the error occuring.
