How to reassociate WebCenter With an External Identity Store (new ORCLGUID) (Doc ID 1556168.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version 11.1.1.6.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

How to to refresh the OID (populated by DIP sync with another directory), which is the current identity store of WebCenter.
The entries will be the same (regarding the main attributes), but the orclguid will be a new one.

Since WebCenter stores not only the DN but also the guid of the directory objects, those references will be broken after this exercise.

The manual it is stated you should contact Oracle support in that case.

"Reassociating an external LDAP identity store (such as OID) in a production environment with another external LDAP store is not supported. If you have a business need to carry out such a reassociation, please contact Oracle support before going ahead as user information and artifacts may be lost in the process."
