Unable To Add Users With a Backslash In Their Name To Web Center Portal
Last updated on AUGUST 24, 2015
Applies to:Oracle Internet Directory - Version 184.108.40.206.0 and later
Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version 220.127.116.11.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
A user with a backslash (the character '\') in the name is unable to log into the portal or be added to portal security.
Users such as 'sfo\aabcd', 'den\eefgh', 'mia\ablmno'.
The two characters following the backslash are made up of valid hexadecimal numbers, 0-9 and a-f.
When the administrator or moderator tries to look up the user in the picker, the filter may not find and return the user.
Searching for 'sfo\a' will return the user 'sfo\aabcd', however, 'sfo\aa' will not.
Even if the user is returned in the search, attempting to select them will result in:
"No matching users were found with search string [user]."
