(Doc ID 2316981.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 18, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Access Manager - Version 11.1.2.3.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The following documentation states that auditing can be configured for the Authentication Failure run-time events:

Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle Access Management
8.3.2 Access Manager Run-time Events You Can Audit


Enabling Filter Preset to All for OAM auditing does not log the User DN or Failure Error Code.

In the OAM Managed Server audit.log below the User Name (uid=tuser) is logged, but not the User DN (cn=testuser,cn=Users,dc=example,dc=com).

Also, authentication to the resource /cgi-bin/printenv failed ("Authentication" false), but the Failure Error Code (unclear whether this should be 49 or OAMSSA-20023) due to invalid credentials is not logged.


OAM VERSIONS KNOWN TO BE AFFECTED: OAM 11.1.2.2.x - 11.1.2.3.x
