OES11g - retrieves all external Ldap attributes from a user (Doc ID 2088976.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 21, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle Entitlements Server - Version 11.1.2.3.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users cannot retrieve from external Ldap only a specific attributes needed, instead of, retrieving all user attributes from Ldap
which could impact negatively the performance in the future when a big amount of users will be used

Symptoms

On OES 11.1.2.3.0 version, OES-Config (non-component), OPSS 11.1.1.9.0

After create a Ldap attribute retriever, for example, "mail", OES gets all attributes from the user, not only the desired one.

The expected behavior would be, after create a Ldap attribute retriever, OES should get only the attribute set for the user, for eample just retrieve the "mail"

Steps

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. In OES 11gr2, go to SM configuration, launching Security Module Configuration UI
2. Add a new Ldap attribute retriever, completing all settings
3. Making sure, have a successful Test Connection, save changes
4. Add the Attribute in a policy, in condition section, using APM
5. Observing in the Ldap logs all attributes retrieved, requested attribute filter is empty
