- WebCenter is configured with Oracle Virtual Directory (OVD) as external LDAP provider.
- OVD connects to both Active Directory (AD) and Oracle Internet Directory (OiD).
- Users and groups from OiD can be assigned WebCenter Roles, but users and groups from Ad cannot.
- Authentication with both users from AD and OiD works fine.
Steps To reproduce:
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
- Login to WebCenter Spaces as an administrator user.
- Click the "Administration" link.
- Select the "Security" Tab -> "Users and Groups" Sub Tab.
- Assign a Role to a Group.
Here it shows the error: Group [mygroup] not found in Identity Store
- Assign a Role to a User.
Here it shows the error: No matching users were found with search string mytestuser
