OIM-OUD Integration Failing Because Of The Object Class Default Settings

(Doc ID 1551919.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 19, 2016

Applies to:

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

Goal

The goal of this knowledge document is to explain a common configuration issue seen when utilzing the Oracle Unified Directory (or other supported LDAP server) Connector with Oracle Identity Manager.

OIM 11.1.2.1 (R2 PS1) is currently integrated with OUD using an out of the box connector "ODSEE/OUD/LDAPV3 Connector 11.1.1.5" .

One has configured OIM to provision specific OU groups inside of OUD. By default the object class of the defined group in OUD is "groupOfNames". When executing a provisioning request from OIM to OUD, the action fails.
However, after modifying the group object class in OUD from "groupOfName" to "groupOfuniqueNames" the behavior changed and OIM was then able to successfully provision users to groups in OUD.
