This note describes how to configure Oracle Access Manager ( OAM ) to pre-fetch LDAP user attributes.

Authentication and Authorization Responses in OAM could be defined based on user attributes. Further OAM 11.1.2 provides the option to configure attribute conditions in authorization policies.  The OAM server executes additional ldapsearch operations to get the attribute values from the LDAP server. Attribute conditions and responses could be configured in different authentication or authorization policies. For this reason the OAM server performs multiple ldapsearch operations dependent from the number of different attributes configured in responses or attribute conditions. If the OAM server executes a response or attribute condition and the LDAP attribute is not found in the cache, a ldapsearch is executed. The user attributes are cached for reuse.  If the OAM server generates a response or executes an attribute condition and the LDAP attribute is not found in the cache, an additional ldapsearch is executed.
