How can the web agent tell that the header value was recalculated at the policy server and pull out its value to the browser?
Which parameter in the ACO has to be synced with the recalculation interval of the header?
You can instruct a SiteMinder Agent to cache response attributes or expire attributes that contain dynamic data, forcing the Agent to contact the Policy Server and update the information. If you configure a static response attribute, the Policy Server only allows you to cache the value. By definition, static values do not change, so there is no need to recalculate them. If you configure user, DN, or active attributes, you can either cache the value or recalculate the value at specific intervals to ensure that the data is current.
When you create Response Attribute, you will see the column to specify Cache Value or Recalculate value every ... seconds (Note: The maximum time limit that can be entered is 3600 seconds).
In addition, you can control how the Web Agent handles cache-related request headers by setting the ACO parameter AllowCacheHeaders.
The parameter specifies whether the Web Agent removes the following cache-related HTTP headers from requests for protected resources before passing those requests to the web server:
This setting affects whether a browser uses cached pages, but it does not affect auto-authorized resources (including those matched by the values in the IgnoreExt parameter). Caching of auto-authorized resources is determined by the settings of the web server and the browser.
