OIM-OAM Integration 11gR2PS3: Sends NULL Password to LDAP When Challenge Questions Are Answered Incorrectly (Doc ID 2534707.1)

Last updated on JULY 21, 2020

Applies to:

Identity Manager - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Current Behavior
In a OIM-OAM Integration 11gR2PS3 integrated environment, if the user click the forgot password link and provide incorrect responses to the challenge questions, the password for the user in OUD gets nulled out. After that, the user is unable to login because the null password prevents authentication. This issue is very similar to bug 25121586, but the environment already has the patch for the bug 25121586

Expected Behavior
When the user enters incorrect challenge questions, the password should not update or change and the user should be rejected from making other authenticated changes to the records, particularly those in OUD.

Steps to Reproduce
1) Attempt to login
2) Click 'Forgot password' link
3) Provide login and incorrect answers to challenge questions
4) Provide new password
5) Commit changes

At that point, the user password is updated to null in the LDAP server.
