Oracle Access Manager (OAM) Display 'An Incorrect Username or Password was Specified' when LDAP Read Timeout is Encountered (Doc ID 2218304.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 13, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Access Manager - Version 11.1.1.7.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

OAM is set with default LDAP timeout setting that is 2 seconds.  During a busy day, the 'LDAP response read timed out' errors are seen.
In this period, users received error message 'An incorrect username or Password was specified' when trying to login, which is very misleading.

Can we display a more meaningful message?
