Analytics Login Events are not showing when using group options if WebCenter Portal is configured with Active Directory as External LDAP.

    setLogLevel(target='WC_Portal',logger='oracle.webcenter.framework.service.AnalyticsUtil',level='FINEST', addLogger=1)
  5. Login to WebCenter Portal with a user from Active Directory.
  6. Look at the portal managed server diagnostic log file.
    Here you will see an entry like this where it shows the login event is sending null user:
    [<TIMESTAMP>] [WC_Portal] [TRACE] [] [oracle.webcenter.framework.service.AnalyticsUtil] [tid: [ACTIVE].ExecuteThread: '2' for queue: 'weblogic.kernel.Default (self-tuning)'] [userId: <USERID>] [ecid: <ECID>] [APP: webcenter] [partition-name: DOMAIN] [tenant-name: GLOBAL] [DSID:<DSID>] [SRC_CLASS: oracle.webcenter.framework.service.AnalyticsUtil] [SRC_METHOD: sendUserProperties] ***** SENDING EVENT : type = {HTTP://WWW.BEA.COM/ANALYTICS}USER_PROFILE, user = null

    While on an instance with embedded LDAP the entry shows the actual userid.
  7. Do not forget to disable the logger after testing:
    setLogLevel(target='WC_Portal',logger='oracle.webcenter.framework.service.AnalyticsUtil',level='', addLogger=1)
