IssueAxM: Missing HTTP Headers that ClearTrust creates,  CT_REMOTE_USER 
ClearTrust headers , especially CT_REMOTE_USER were not being passed on to the Oracle Application server. The headers were present when using a dumpvars.asp test page on the IIS server.  The Oracle proxy on IIS was not passing on the ClearTrust headers to the Oracle Application server.
CauseThe Oracle was installed as a filter and proxying pages.  There were installation steps that were skipped concerning the registry.
ResolutionThe Install process involves creating Windows registry entries and using the IIS management console to add directories and filters. You must restart the listener after configuring the plug-in. Refer to section  "Configuring IIS Listener to Use OracleAS Proxy Plug-in" in the Oracle? HTTP Server Administrator's Guide
