A "binary" Tag Is Being Added To Binary Attributes In OUD 11.1.2.3.x (Doc ID 2123610.1)

Last updated on JULY 26, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Unified Directory - Version 11.1.2.3.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

After upgrading OUD from 11.1.2.2.0 to 11.1.2.3.0, the custom attribute used for OpenSSH Public Key now contains a ";binary::" tag in the name of the attribute. This is causing problems with applications that are trying to read that attribute.

Schema entry for the attribute -
attributeTypes: ( OpenSSHPublicKey-oid NAME 'OpenSSHPublicKey' DESC 'AUXILIARY: OpenSSH Public key' SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.5 )

Difference between the OpenSSHPublicKey attribute in version 11.1.2.2.0 and 11.1.2.3.0 -
