The "Group Membership Searching: Limited" option has no effect on querying groups in WebLogic (WLS) IdentityService if "direct" flag is set to "false". With "direct=true", it works as expected.
It seems the "Limited" flag is ignored if "direct" is set to false.
For example, with the following hierarchy:
Then run getGrantedRolesToGroup in WLS Identity Service Console, with "Group Membership Searching: Limited" and Search Level: 1.
If the "direct" flag is set to "false", all parent groups are returned.
If the "direct" flag is set to "true", only the direct parent is returned.
