How To Restrict Visibility of Active Directory Provider Users And Groups Based On Their Membership (Doc ID 1574088.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 23, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 10.3.5 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

How can the setup for the Active Directory (AD) provider restrict visibility to two specific groups of users?

AD provider should be configured such that the rest of groups and users apart from the two specific groups would not be visible. Only a sub-set of the whole AD (LDAP) tree could be used.

For example, say both users and groups are located in the LDAP branch ou=EIS,DC=ad,DC=vm,DC=oracle,DC=com

But only those users who are members of either EIS_DBA group or HWK_DBA group should be visible to the realm.
