Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

UCM 11g integrated with AD through WLS Authentication provider . On UCM under Administration - Providers - JPS Provider changed Role Prefix to point to the DN under which the groups / roles are created instead of pointing to the Root starting from OU . After doing this change AD users when logging to UCM not seeing the right set of roles propagated from AD. All the users are shown with guest role.

For eg : 

Groups are under the branch DC=SupportDomain8,DC=com  on AD. 

Hence Group Base DN on WLS provider is changed to the aforementioned DN and also the same is set as Role Prefix for JPS Provider .

Group Base DN: DC=SupportDomain8,DC=com

RolePrefix=DC=SupportDomain8,DC=com[1]
