    • $DOMAIN_HOME/bin/
  2. Start WLST
    • $ORACLE_HOME/oracle_common/common/bin/
  3. Connect to OAM
    • Connect(‘weblogic’,’WeblogicPassword’,’t3://localhost:7001’)
  4. You should now be logged into WLST and ready to issue WLST Commands:
  5. Type “domainRuntime()”
  6. Type the following:

setSPPartnerAlternateScheme(“SFDC”, “true”, httpHeaderName=”User-Agent”, httpHeaderExpression=”.*((Android)|(iPhone)).*”, authnScheme=”WorkspaceONEFederationScheme”)

NOTE: Replace “SFDC” with the correct partner name as per your configuration. If you named your Workspace ONE IDP instance differently from the steps in the document, replace with the correct name in the command above.

For more information on this WLST command and other available commands, please refer to the following documentation:

  1. Type “exit()”

Note: There could be a slight delay when updating the configuration via WLST until the changes are propagated across all OAM nodes.
