X509 Authentication Fails With Space In Selection Filter, Error "The authentication scheme has an invalid selection filter in its selection filter plugin."

(Doc ID 1527974.1)

Applies to:

COREid Access - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Oracle Access Manager (OAM) with a recent Bundle Patch (BP) installed has been configured for X509 certificate authentication.

The X509 authentication scheme has a selection_filter plugin configured in addition to cert_decode and credential_mapping. The selection_filter plugin specifies a value with a space / whitespace in it.

For example:

and a client certificate having Organisation (O) = OracleCorporationLtd is used to access the resource then the error does not reproduce.

The problem does not occur with base release. It is known to be reproducible with Access Server BP10 and BP11, and possibly also with earlier BPs.
