Last updated on FEBRUARY 05, 2018
Applies to:Oracle WebCenter Content - Version 220.127.116.11.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Using WebCenter Content 18.104.22.168.0PSU-2014-09-04 00:14:28Z-r120579 (Bundle Patch 7) on Linux.
The environment was upgraded from WebCenter Content 22.214.171.124 to WebCenter Content 126.96.36.199 BP7.
Credential map and user/role mapping has not changed after the upgrade.
Since the upgrade to WCC 188.8.131.52 BP7, some users have some missing roles. Not all users are affected. The roles are missing until they update their User Profile. After the profile update, the correct roles are granted.
Tracing shows that group retrieval from OID for the users works like expected including the mapping (through credential map). But at the end of the trace, some roles are missing.
Steps to reproduce:
In OID (or any other LDAP server):
- Create a user called testuser
- Create 3 groups: test1, test2, test3
- Add testuser as a member to the 3 groups test1, test2, test3
In WebCenter Content:
- Create roles test1, test2, tst3 (note: not test3)
- Add following lines to the credential map:
Restart WebCenter Content
Login to WebCenter Content as testuser and go to the User Profile by clicking on the user name:
Result: not all 3 roles are granted
Click on Update to update the profile, and go back to the User Profile:
Result: test1, test2 and tst3 roles are granted.
