Unable to Change Role Membership In WebCenter Portal for Some Users (Doc ID 2005020.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version 11.1.1.1.0 to 11.1.1.6.6 [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Some members of a Space/Portal cannot be removed for the Space/Portal or have their role privileges altered.

When attempting to make these changes errors such as the following appear in the WebCenter Space/Portal application log.


Caused by:oracle.security.jps.service.policystore.PolicyObjectNotFoundException: javax.naming.directory.NoSuchAttributeException: [LDAP: error code 16 - One or more values for attribute uniquemember does not exist]; remaining name 'cn=s03cc77e7_6a12_5561_8e03_44e82cbby513\#-\#Moderator,cn=Roles,cn=webcenter,cn=WCP_domain,cn=JPSContext,cn=root_webcenter_WCP'

The user retains the privileges of the Role.
The user may not be removed from the Role.
The user may not be re-added to the Role.

Changes

 Code or manual processes have been executed to correct repported dangling references in the OID hosting the OPSS data store.  These dangling references include the uniquemember attribute of the OPSS metadata for the Space/Portal role granted to the affected user.
