Two Duplicate Group Entries Seen When Granting Privilege On A Space To Certain Groups (Doc ID 1321459.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter - Version: 11.1.1.4.0 and later   [Release: 11g and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Duplicate Group Entries are seen in a 11.1.1.4 WebCenter installation when assigning privileges if the Group name contains the string USER or user.

Steps to reproduce :-
1. Login to WebCenter as an administrator user ie weblogic
2. Create 2 groups in the LDAP repository used
- GROUP_WITH_USER_IN
- GROUP_WITHOUT_U_S_E_R_IN
3. Create a space and a page
4. Edit page properties - Security, and set to use Custom Access Settings
5. Try to add View privileges to both the new groups
- GROUP_WITH_USER_IN --- Duplicate appears in the list
- GROUP_WITHOUT_U_S_E_R_IN --- Added fine with no problem

The first entry doesn't seem to behave correctly, but the second entry looks OK.

Changes

The problem reproduces with OID or embedded LDAP as the identity store.
