ODSEE - ACL Assignment - Access Rights Not Working (Doc ID 1663132.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 27, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Using "cn=Directory Manager" to create/delete/edit accounts in to the LDAP instance.

However, since  it is preferred to avoid using "cn=Directory Manager" account to manage users accounts, an ACL was created to allow a user to create/delete/edit accounts in the LDAP instance.

Restrictions for this user are within the suffix "ou=student,ou=people,dc=xx,dc=xx,dc=xx"

The following ACI was created on the dc=xxx,dc=xxx,dc=xxx entry which resulted in no syntax error:
(targetattr="*") (version 3.0; acl "studentadmin"; allow (all) (userdn = "ldap:///self" or userdn = "ldap:///uid=studentadmin,dc=xx,dc=xx,dc=xx") ;)

When attempting to modify the password of a user, such as the 'userPassword' attribute of an entry 'uid=txxk,ou=student,ou=people,dc=xx,dc=xx,dc=xx'
the following error occurs.

[10/Jan/2014:20:23:44 +0800] conn=4804 op=13 msgId=14 - RESULT err=50 tag=103 nentries=0 etime=0, Insufficient 'write' privilege to the 'userPassword' attribute of entry 'uid=txxk,ou=student,ou=people,dc=xx,dc=xx,dc=xx'.
