Using SOA BPEL/Workflow integrated with OID

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.
