OBIEE 12c: When Editing Agent And Making LDAP User Search On Catalog Or Via Permsissions It Triggers A Full Wildcard LDAP Search (Doc ID 2214844.1)

Last updated on JUNE 02, 2017

Applies to:

Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition - Version 12.2.1.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In OBIEE 12c, when trying to edit /create Agent, it is trying to fetch all the users from LDAP server and server is timing out.

When opening New agent page, Delivers starts a search on all users in the LDAP server.

In most cases that's not a problem. But if your LDAP has over 100,000 users, this search takes too much time and ends up timing out.

The same issue occurs when trying to search users in Catalog or VA permissions or any kind of user search.
