OAM 11.1.2.2 - $user.attr.dn Returns A DN With : Used As The RDN Seperator (Doc ID 1631205.1)

Last updated on MARCH 27, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Access Manager - Version 11.1.2.2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Using OAM 11.1.2.2, in the Authorization Policy a header response was defined as following:
  OAM_User_DN = $user.attr.dn

After accessing an OAM protected resource as user e.g. john.doe, when checking the returned header responses, you can see that OAM_User_DN has value "cn=john.doe:cn=users:dc=us:dc=oracle:dc=com".
While the expected value for this header response would be "cn=john.doe,cn=users,dc=us,dc=oracle,dc=com", as it happened in previous 11g releases of OAM.

In other words, in 11.1.2.2 release it appears that the usual RDNs separator "," was replaced with ":".
