Goal

In OAM Console in UserIdentificationPlugin configuration page  characters '<' and '>' are not allowed in the field KEY_LDAP_FILTER.
For example, if using (&(uid={KEY_USERNAME})(value < 5)) as filter, getting error:

"Error: Input String is not valid

This is a known limitation of oamconsole which will be fixed as part of ER 25024203.
