Applies to:

Oracle Platform Security for Java - Version 11.1.1.1.0 to 11.1.1.7.0 [Release Oracle11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Fusion MiddleWare WebLogic Security Realm has been configured to use one or more LDAP Authenticator providers.

After this configuration, access to any application that uses the WebLogic Oracle Platform Security Services (OPSS) functionality for authentication or authorization is failing after login. The error seen in the browser depends on the application being accessed.

The WebLogic Managed Server log shows an error similar to the following:

oracle.security.idm.OperationFailureException: javax.naming.directory.InvalidSearchFilterException: Unbalanced parenthesis; remaining name 'dc=oracle,dc=com'
