Oracle Identity Federation - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


How is Oracle Identity Federation (OIF) 11g as Identity Provider (IdP) expected to behave in the case that it receives an incorrect value from the integrated Authentication Engine for User ID?

For example, if Oracle Access Manager (OAM) is configured as OIF Authentication Engine and OAM passes an incorrect authenticated User ID value to OIF after authentication e.g. value "uid" instead of the authenticated user's uid attribute value.

In which circumstances will OIF as IdP execute a search of the User Data Store for the authenticated User ID?
