'#' sign in URL being truncated from Office products with Siteminder SSO

Have seen this in the community already, so apologies for the duplication.

Anytime our users click a hyperlink from an Office Product (might even be more) and they don't have an authenticated session established to Windchill through SSO, the URL is getting truncated.  I have been round and round with our Web/SSO teams, PTC TS and the EDC, and we are still nowhere closer to a solution.

I have seen a solution where the URL gets sent off for manipulation before going to SSO...basically encoding the # character...not sure how to do that or even if that will be acceptable in our landscape.

Windchill and SiteMinder software

Hey jkim,

It sounds like you've been in touch with PTC Tech Support already?  Was a Support case created, and were you linked up with this SPR?  SPR 5718623

 

Here's the sparse SPR article:

https://www.ptc.com/en/support/article?n=CS240099

 

Here's a more encompassing article, that includes this issue.  It mentions some work-around options, which may or may not satisfy your use-case.

It seems like it's an SPR still in progress. 

 

For anyone who is hitting this issue, I would encourage them to open a Support case, and make sure they get linked up with the SPR.
