After successfully configuring the LDAP authentication (with groups in Database) of an OBIEE 11.1.1.5 installation as part of OBI 7.9.6.3,
we are trying to remove a Group X from an Application Role X (X meaning they have the same name).
After pressing OK button, we receive the following error message: "The search for role X failed",
So we cannot save the change, and the group remains a member of the Application Role
