OUD11g - Existing Attribute Loses Subtype When Adding the Same Attribute with Subtype
(Doc ID 2179509.1)
Last updated on AUGUST 18, 2021
Applies to:Oracle Unified Directory - Version 22.214.171.124.1 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 same attribute of "description;lang-ja" is then added to the entry:
The existing attribute/value pair of "description;lang-ja: VALUE1" loses its subtype "lang-ja". Here's what the entry looks like after the update is made:
description: VALUE1 <--- Problem Data
The issue has been observed in OUD versions 126.96.36.199.1, 188.8.131.52.160419, and 184.108.40.206.160719
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.
