Is it possible to synchronize password verifiers between a third-party ldap server and OID? (Doc ID 1622400.1)

Last updated on JULY 01, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 10.2.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Setup:

* EUS is integrated with OID.

* OID in turn is integrated to an external third-party ldap server through external authentication plugins.

It was experienced that once a user's password was changed on the external ldap server a subsequent EUS login with the new password succeeded. As EUS does not use a user's  password to authenticate but rather a DB verifier this seems to indicate a synchronization mechanism between the external directory and OID.
