OUD 12c ( ) : OUD SCIM Data Management API Create a User fails with "500 Internal Server Error" via Postman and OUD access log with "Error occured while processing HTTP Request" and LDAP Error 32 (Doc ID 2631295.1)

Last updated on MARCH 17, 2021

Applies to:

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


Have an OUD environment set in postman and the REST DATA API's and REST ADMIN API's are working fine per below Oracle By Example link. When trying to create user/group using SCIM API's , it errors out as 500 Internal Server Error per below Postman screen shot.

  Using Oracle Unified Directory REST APIs with Postman



When seen in OUD access logs, below error is seen. OUD SCIM API is picking up incorrect "dc=<SUFFIX>,dc=com" instead of configured OUD suffix "dc=<TEST_SUFFIX>,dc=com". 

The incorrect suffix "dc=<SUFFIX>,dc=com"  is the default suffix and somewhere hard coded or existing in some unknown config file while creating a User via Postman OUD SCIM Data Management API.


[2020-01-04T13:42:06.250+08:00] [oud_testinst] [ERROR] [OUD-50593864] [HTTP]
[host: <HOSTNAME<] [nwaddr:<IP_ADDRESS>] [tid: 122] [userId: <USERNAME>]
[ecid: <ecid>] Error occured while processing HTTP Request. Cause: The provided entry uid=uid=<user_ID>,dc=<SUFFIX>,dc=com cannot be added because its suffix is not defined as one of the suffixes within the Directory Server
