OID 11g: Using \ Slash in a DIP Mapping Rule Fails with: Unrecognized token in attribute mapping rule (Doc ID 1636888.1)

Last updated on JULY 01, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 11.1.1.5.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Oracle Internet Directory (OID) 11g, i.e., 11.1.1.5 or later, with Directory Integration Platform (DIP).

Using DIP attribute mapping rule with a backslash, such as:

  "somevalue" + "\" + samaccountname

This causes the following error message:

Unrecognized token in attribute mapping rule

And the profile cannot be enable (even with force enabling) due to "validation errors in the profile".

This mapping rule (and similar mapping rules with '\' or '\\') used to work in OID/DIP 10g.
