ERROR: "The attribute re_key does not exist!" During Trusted Reconciliation with Possible StuckThreads and/or Dynamic Org Membership Changes Do Not Occur (Doc ID 1914387.1)

Last updated on MARCH 31, 2017

While running Trusted Reconciliation, errors with "The attribute re_key does not exist!" are shown in the log files and can cause stuck threads.

In the most common cases, you see that Dynamic Organization Membership changes do not get updated during trusted reconciliation. Such that, if the value of an attribute for a user associated with the Dynamic Org Membership rule is updated manually, the users membership gets updated. But if the attributes are updated via reconciliation, the membership of the user does not get updated. 

These errors have also been seen while running trusted reconciliation even when no Dynamic Org Membership rule is set (and with no reported loss of functionality).


There are a few known log patterns related to this issue.  In all cases, the message will show "The attribute re_key does not exist!":

Case 1:  NoSuchAttributeException
