LDAP Error 32 Reported At IDS Layer While Overriding Search Base After PS3 Upgrade (Doc ID 2250954.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 26, 2019

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


- Use case is the attempt to use authentication modules, to use different search base KEY_SEARCH_BASE_URL
for each application. In OAM 11gR2PS3 it fail. With this setup, in OAM 11gR2PS1 , user authentication works fine as expected.
After upgrade OAM 11gR2PS1 to 11gR2PS3 with the same configuration, user authentication on applications using
different authentication modules plugins breaks

- To understand usecase configuration that worked in 11gR2PS1 there is:
User Search Base: ou=<OVD_DOMAIN>,o=com
Group search base: ou=<OVD_DOMAIN>,o=com

Authentication Module
Step UserID, Plugin name: UserIdentificationPlugin

> we see indeed here KEY_SEARCH_BASE_URL completely different/not overlap with <OVD_IDSTORE> User Search Base

this worked fine in 11gR2PS1

- 11gR2PS3 uses IDS, which was not the case with 11gR2PS1
the error observed in the log is as follows
