Missing UDF Date Field for LDAPSync from OIM to OUD (Doc ID 2200766.1)

Last updated on APRIL 03, 2017

Applies to:

Identity Manager - Version 11.1.2.3.160719 and later
Oracle Unified Directory - Version 11.1.1.5.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Trying to configure OIM to sync a date field from OIM to OUD via LDAPSync.
For some reason it is not working.
At the time, configured OIM to provision this date field another 6 attributes.
- All 6 of those other attributes were created properly.


STEPS TO REPRODUCE
--------------------------
1. Login to OIM sysadmin page as xelsysadm

2. Create/activate a sandbox

3. Click "System Entities" > "User"

4. For each of the following attributes, click edit and enter the "LDAP Attribute", then click "Save and Close"

 Name LDAP Attribute
 --------------------- ---------------------
 Comments oudComments
 DeptType oudDepttype
 ExpiredDate oudExpired
 NewAddress oudNewaddr
 EmailDeliveryAddress oudMailaddr
 ExternalInfo oudExtinfo
 HomePageURL oudUrl

5. Publish the sandbox

6. Extend the OUD schema with the new attributes using ldif
-----------------------------------------
 LDAP Schema:


dn: cn=schema
objectClass: top
objectClass: ldapSubentry
objectClass: subschema
cn: schema
attributeTypes: ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.65.9.11 NAME 'oudComments' DESC 'User Defined Attribute' SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15 X-ORIGIN 'user defined' )

attributeTypes: ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.65.9.14 NAME 'oudNewaddr' DESC 'User Defined Attribute' SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15 X-ORIGIN 'user defined' )
attributeTypes: ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.65.9.12 NAME 'oudDepttype' DESC 'User Defined Attribute' SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15 X-ORIGIN 'user defined' )
objectClasses: ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.65.9.98 NAME 'dcEntry' AUXILIARY MAY ( oudComments $ oudUrl $ oudExtinfo $ oudExpired $ oudMailaddr $ oudNewaddr $ oudDepttype ) X-ORIGIN 'user defined' )

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Note that oudExpired has syntax for Directory String, which will work in the steps below.
