With Virtualize set to True, Users aren't getting Nested Groups as Roles (Doc ID 1627245.1)

Last updated on MAY 26, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Content - Version 11.1.1.6.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The Webcenter Content domain has two external LDAP providers configured.

As required, the virtualize is set for true in the jps-config.xml file as specificed in <Note: 1359171.1>.

The LDAP users are members of groups outside of the Group Base DN.

In turn these groups are nested, they are member of groups that are within the Group Base DN.

Example:

The Group Base DN is set as ou=Roles,ou=Oracle,dc=mycompany,dc=com

User imacontributor is a member of group cn=ReadWrite,ou=Writers,ou=Oracle,dc=mycompany,dc=com

Group ReadWrite is a member of group cn=contributor,ou=Roles,ou=Oracle,dc=mycompany,dc=com

When the user logs into the WCC, neither ReadWrite or contributor display as WCC roles.
