BPEL - OID: Identity Server Not Recognizing Roles For Users In a Dynamic Group (Doc ID 943160.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 03, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle(R) BPEL Process Manager - Version 10.1.3.1 to 10.1.3.5.0
Oracle SOA Platform - Version 10.1.3.1.0 to 10.1.3.5.0
Information in this document applies to any platform.
This problem can occur on any platform.

Symptoms

Using SOA BPEL/Workflow integrated with OID 10.1.2.1.0.

BPEL Identity Service is not recognizing roles (group) for users in an OID dynamic group.  When you create an OID dynamic group (i.e. BPMDynamicGroup) and this is associated with some users (e.g. jsalaman). When you log into OID, they show up as members of BPMDynamicGroup group. However, when you log into BPEL Worklist, the users authenticate successfully, but they are not able to see the task assigned to the group. On the other hand if you add static users (e.g. jsalaman1) directly under the group, they are able to see the task as expected.

If you ran the IdentityService web service from Enterprise Manager and executed the operation getGrantedRolesToUser. The results showed the status for user jsalaman1, as part of the BPMDynamicGroup group. The dynamic user, jsalaman, did not return as part of the group.
