Externally Authenticated Users Cannot Modify the Password For Native OID User Accounts
Last updated on SEPTEMBER 14, 2016
Applies to:Oracle Internet Directory - Version: 188.8.131.52
Information in this document applies to any platform.
It is intended that users who have been granted an administrator role should be able to reset user passwords.
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Configure the External Authentication plugins against an external directory service (eg. Active Directory, eDirectory, iPlanet)
2. Grant a password administration role to an externally authenticated user account.
3. Attempt to reset the password of a native OID user account.
Due to this issue, password administration role can not be delegated to externally authenticated users.
