Does anyone subscribe to WRDS and use WAM to proxy access to it?
If so, are you getting a "User / Subscriber not found" error when your queries are submitted to /wrds/process/wrds.cfm?
Which release are you on?
We've determined that the issue is that when the query is passed to wrds.cfm as a POST, each query parameter is having one character stripped from the end of the value (e.g., 'sculib' becomes 'sculi') when it is passed as a GET to /cgi-bin/wrds.cgi.
We've reported it to both WRDS and Innovative, but haven't heard anything from either. AFAIK, WRDS has not received any reports from their EZProxy customers.
We're fairly certain that this occurred after our upgrade to Release 2011 in late December, but we can't pinpoint it to that day.
