Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

 Configure Oracle BPM to work with multiple authentication adapters and merge the users and groups from that adapters.
For example, you have 2 LDAP providers and define 2 authentication providers corresponding to the LDAP providers: A1 and A2.
User u1 is defined in A1, user u2 is defined in A2 and user jdoe is defined in both  adapters.
In user jdoe belong to the group g1 in the adapter A1 and to the group g2 in the adapter A2.

With regular configuration using libOVD (setting virtualize=true) you can user the users defined in different adapters,
so all users will be able to login to the workspace.
However, the user jdoe will be authorized only against one of defined providers  and will belong only to the groups from that provider.
Assuming the A1 is first in the libOVD providers chain, jdoe will be authorzed against A1 and belong to g1.
The goal is to configure libOVD so the user jdoe belongs to both g1 and g2.
