Change of Group Membership for a User in a Remote Novell eDirectory LDAP does not Get Synchronized or Refreshed in WebLogic Server Users and Groups (Doc ID 2889479.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 18, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In a remote Novell eDirectory LDAP the changes of group membership for a user are not getting reflected in the WebLogic Server Users and Groups.

The user used to have many groups membership that were reduced to only 2 in the remote Ldap Novell eDirectory but when checking the users and group via AdminConsole it still shows all the many groups so it seems it is not in Sync.

Issue persists after disabling the cache for the Authentication Provider.

Connecting with a third party ldap browser it shows the current 2 groups for the user.

Enabling authentication debugging shows that the connection succeeds and all groups are retrieved.
