OAM does CN based user search resulting in " Exception multiple users found with same name"

(Doc ID 1633084.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

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


In an OAM/OIM integrated environment, when OAM retrieves authenticated users's attributes for password policy, it does a user look up based on CN instead of DN.

This could be a problem if users with same CN exists under different trees in the user store and OAM throws exception as below.
