I have read this document here :Apply CA SiteMinder® Behavior to a Web Application Client - CA Single Sign-On - 12.52 SP1 - CA Technologies Documentatio…

And I've also looked at the AJAX web agent sample, but it's not clear to me how to define a web application client response to handle the following scenario:

 

When using siteminder FORM authentication, how do you handle Siteminder session timeout for an AJAX request without losing your whole page ?  On session timeout, the "default" form security siteminder HTML page will contain a FORM that will redirect to the Siteminder login page, and after you enter your SM credentials, automatically fires the POST/GET request that got interrupted.  That's fine and dandy except for AJAX requests obviously.

 

I don't understand how the WebAppClientResponse ACO parameter  helps in this case.  The AJAX sample says to create an HTML page with SiteminderReason and SiteminderRedirectURL attributes.  What would this SiteminderRedirectURL be? and how would that help recover the AJAX POST/GET request that got interrupted by the siteminder session timeout ???
