OUD11g - Existing Attribute Loses Subtype When Adding the Same Attribute with Subtype
Last updated on SEPTEMBER 09, 2016
Applies to:Oracle Unified Directory - Version 126.96.36.199.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
When adding an attribute with subtype (attribute option) to an entry, if the attribute already exists within the entry, then the existing attribute loses its subtype.
For example, here is an user entry prior to modification:
The issue has been observed in OUD versions 188.8.131.52.1, 184.108.40.206.160419, and 220.127.116.11.160719
The issue is similar to what's reported in Document 2164416.1, but the behavior is slightly different.
The issue occurs when the following conditions are met.
- The entry has attribute with subtype and the same name attribute is then added to the entry.
- The attribute is unencrypted.
- The Directory Server participates in a Replication Topology.
