Oracle Virtual Directory (OVD) 11g, i.e.,

Configuring OVD to expose an LDAP view using the Database Adapter for a Mysql Ver 14.14 database.

Following documentation:

Oracle® Fusion Middleware Tutorial for Oracle Identity Management 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) Part Number E10276-01
Chapter 5 Creating Oracle Virtual Directory Adapters


The consuming service (for example, 3rd party SCIM Outbound Provisioning of PingFederate 7.0.1) requires the LDAP Root to have supportControls defined. This service monitors the ldap (exposed via OVD) and sends delta updates.

Able to see that the PingFederate code is looking for the following supportedControl entries in the RootDSE:
supportedControl: 1.2.840.113556.1.4.319 (Simple Paged Results Supported)
supportedControl: 2.16.840.1.113730.3.4.9 (Virtual List View Supported)
supportedControl: 1.2.840.113556.1.4.802 (Incremental Retrieval Of Attribute Values)

When using JXplorer, for example, to search the ldap exposed via OVD, able to see all the sub entries that are coming from the database, but not the attributes of the RootDSE.

How to configure OVD, either via Oracle Directory Services Manager (ODSM) or CLI, to assign these supportControls?
