Custom authorization in Datapower

We have an enterprise authorization web service integrated to our Datapower Appliance as a custom AAA step.Everything seemed to work fine but it was showing “authorization failed” all the time.

The simple trick was to  just to put the <approved/> node in the stylesheet and the resulting node tree in case of success..

Simple, but have to know …

From Datapower Authentication and Authorization Redbook :

– Custom template
Authorization might be managed through an XSL stylesheet. Two different outputs are also possible for this XSL:

• The <approved/> element, which means “authorization success” to the DataPowerAAA framework

• The <declined/> element, which means “authorization failure”
