Testing LDAP Integration with Test URL has Incorrect Testing Steps in Documentation (Doc ID 2015180.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 24, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Sites - Version 11.1.1.8.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

After performing LDAP integration, documentation advises to verify the integration by hitting the following url in the browser

       http://<servername>:<port>/<context>/CatalogManager?ftcmd=login&<username>=ContentServer&<password>=password

However, this yields a blank screen and an error in sites.log:

[ERROR] [.kernel.Default (self-tuning)'] [logging.cs.auth.request] Catalog Manager request authentication failed.
