OUD Proxy Server - Join Workflow element throwing severe warning messages:

Requirement to create an aggregated user data view from two OUD LDAP directories. For user data aggregation, have used OUD proxy join workflow element.

Configured a virtualization on OUD proxy server using OOTB join workflow element. This workflow element has two participants and both LDAP participants are OUD servers. OAM consumes this view for authentication.

Issue:

OUD proxy server is throwing a below “Severe warning” message in error log files for every authentication request coming from Oracle Access manager.
[24/Nov/2016:03:28:02 +1300] category=JOIN_WFE severity=SEVERE_WARNING msgID=42074214 msg=Unable to transform filter 'user.99'
