Validation of viewstate MAC failed error message

SecureAuth IdP Version affectedAll

 

Description:

Cause:
This is a load balancer related issue. This is typically seen when a web application (SecureAuth IdP) is in a load balanced configuration and the session persistence is set to transient.

Resolution:
