OUD 11g: Incorrect Search Results (Wrongly Encoded) When Search Filter Contains Wildcards and Data Contains Special Characters (UTF-8) (Doc ID 2041534.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 14, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Unified Directory - Version 11.1.2.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Searches against OUD 11.1.2.2 return entries that do not match the search filter.

With a searchfilter of -

  (cn=*e*)

the results may contain entries whose 'cn' value contain an 'é' (e + accent acute) or other special characters derived from 'e'. However it is not confined to 'e' but happens with other characters that are the base of special characters as well.

This also occurs with other languages' special characters (confirmed for German umlaut characters and Latvia characters).

 

This issue occurs using ldapsearch as well as when searching within ODSM.
