Unable to Manage Users or Groups in Portal/DAS With Specific Users (Doc ID 339077.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 18, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 10.1.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Unable to manage users or groups in Portal/DAS pages with users synchronized to OID from Active Directory. Local OID users can administer without problem.

When trying to manage groups via Portal the following error occurs:
    Group Management Error!
    No Privileges to Edit Group.

When accessing /oiddas directly, after login as a synchronized user with DAS administration group (OralceDASAdminGroup) membership there is no Create button displayed under the Directory tab and only the User and Group subtabs are displayed.
In Active Directory the users are created with name structure <surname>,<firstname> i.e. with a comma in the CN. DIP synchronization creates the users in OID with DN cn=<surname>\,<firstname>,<parenttree>. This is the expected and correct mapping.
With setting DEBUG_LEVEL|true in <IM_home>/ldap/das/, the <IM_home>/ldap/log/das.log shows that DAS is not registering group membership e.g.
