Oracle Access Manager 11g Does Not Authenticate Users From External LDAP Server (Doc ID 1241315.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

COREid Access - Version: 11.1.2.0 and later   [Release: and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

An external LDAP is registered using the OAM 11g Admin Console. The registration is done successfully.

An application domain is created, which is using the authentication module using the above LDAP.

Webgate 10g is installed on Apache 2.2, which is sitting in front of the WebLogic Application Server 10.3.3 hosting the test applications.

While accessing the resource protected by either a form-based or basic authentication scheme (using the above LDAP), authentication is not checked against the external LDAP.  Instead, authentication is only checked against the Embedded LDAP Server of the WebLogic 10.3.3 where OAM 11g is deployed. While adding external LDAP through authentication module, are there any additional steps required?
