OIDDAS Not Populating Attribute Value in OID 10g Upon User Creation When the Attribute Name Contains "DN" (Such As orclsourceobjectDN) (Doc ID 1341729.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 26, 2019

Oracle Internet Directory - Version to [Release 10gR3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Oracle Internet Directory (OID) Delegated Admnistrative Services (DAS or OIDDAS) 10g ( integrated with OID (10g or 11g).

Adding value for an attribute that happens to have the keyword "dn" in its name, such as orclsourceobjectDN for example, manually via OIDDAS user creation method.

Although OIDDAS has been properly configured for the attribute as per <Note:763147.1> , upon creation of a new user, able to add a value to the attribute and save the user without errors, however the attribute is not being populated.

Steps to reproduce:
1.  Login to oiddas as orcladmin > Configure tab > User Entries subtab > add objectclasses orcladobject and orcladuser (for this case example) > Next (Configure User Attributes) > remove undesired attribute if needed and add configuration for the attribute desired using UI Type: Single Line Text (as a DN option is not available) and set to Viewable and Required as desired.

2.  Save and restart OC4J_SECURITY.

3.  Log back into oiddas and create a new user, add a DN value for the orclobjectsourcedn, for example: cn=dastest1,ou=users,dc=company,dc=com

4.  Save and note that no error is returned and the user is created ok.

5.  Viewing the user entry in OIDDAS, 10g Oracle Directory Manager (ODM or oidadmin) or 11g Oracle Directory Services Manager (ODSM) shows orclsourceobjectdn either non-existant or with no value (or null value).

All other attributes are populated correctly and as when created.

Bouncing OC4J_SECURITY does not help.

Go into 10g ODM or 11g ODSM, navigate to the new user entry and enter the DN value again and save.   From that point on the DN value will show up correctly in OIDDAS.
