How to Allow Unicode Characters in Email Attribute Field in OIM 11g? (Doc ID 1420333.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 10, 2016

Applies to:

Identity Manager - Version 11.1.1.5.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Customers may need to make unicode characters available for the email ID field should the user desire to use them. For example, they are typing this in the email field:
äã@example.com

The default OIM 11g installation has a validation against such characters.

This is the validation error that pops up:
Error: The format is incorrect.
Invalid e-mail id. Please enter a valid e-mail id.
