Creation Of Multiple Schemas Causes OID 10g Oracle Directory Manager (ODM/oidadmin) Dropdowns To Behave Incorrectly / Fail to Display Correct Information (Doc ID 552827.1)

Last updated on MARCH 12, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version to [Release 10gR3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Dropdowns fail to display correct information on various screens in 10.1.4 Oracle Directory Manager.

How to reproduce the problem:

    1. Create multiple subschemas. Follow the instructions the Oracle Internet Directory Administrator's Guide 10g ( > 11.1 About the Directory Schema

      Here is a sample LDIF that can be used to reproduce this problem:
      dn: cn=sample,cn=subSchemaSubentry
      objectClass: subschema
      objectClass: subentry
      cn: sample
      attributetypes: ( 2.25.84259782190870641853602765746065491227.1 NAME 'sampleAttr'
       DESC 'An example attribute for testing purposes'
       EQUALITY caseExactIA5Match
       SYNTAX '' )
      objectclasses: ( 2.25.84259782190870641853602765746065491227.2
       NAME 'sampleOC' )

  1. Add the contents of that LDIF to OID using ldapadd.
  2. Using Oracle Directory Manager (oidadmin), go to any screen containing a drop-down where attributes can be selected.

    For example:
    1. Go to "Access Control Management" to edit a subtree control point.
    2. Go to "Create via Wizard" for Content Access Items.

    The search criteria box on the first screen only allows selection of user attribute types from one of the subschema entries -- it should allow selection from any.

    This problem also afflicts drop-downs on numerous other screens in Oracle Directory Manager.
