OUD 11g/12c - How to Enable EUS with a New Suffix when a User Suffix Already Exists (Doc ID 2339580.1)

Last updated on MAY 22, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Unified Directory - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Configuring EUS and separating EUS configuration information from existing user information/entries.

This document goes over how to enable Enterprise User Security (EUS) where the EUS configuration is contained a new suffix which is separate from the user suffix (which contains user entries) and where the user suffix already exists in an OUD instance.

The Oracle documentation shows how to use the manage-suffix command but that command does not configure the Global ACIs required to point to the user suffix (which differs from the EUS configuration suffix), and does not configure the user suffix in the EUS Workflow Element. The manage-suffix command does not include info about the user suffix. So it can not make the required configuration.

To enable EUS and add EUS configuration entries in the same suffix as a user suffix that already exists refer to -
