Issues related to LDAP / Active Directory Integration with OER (Doc ID 948690.1)

Last updated on MAY 12, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Enterprise Repository - Version 10.3.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Q1: Why does users not able to login to OER application after configured with Active Directory?

Q2: Why users are not listed when Active Directory is configured in OER?

Q3: Why does users not able to save any changes to System Settings?

Q4: How does one resolve "Invalid username/password - Problem performing initial bind for Admin account."?

Q5: Why one of the LDAP user must be an Admin in OER application?

Q6: Is it possible to synchronize all users to OER without user login?

Q7: When configuring Oracle Enterprise Repository to use an LDAP directory as user repository, will it also use the users email addresses from the LDAP for emailing users eg. on changes on subscribed assets?
If possible, which configuration steps are neccessary?

Q8: Clarify 'Auto create missing roles'?

Q9:Which Active Directory entry is used for creating the missing roles? Is it the entry provided in "Role Attribute"?

Q10: If "Use LDAP Roles" is set to True, does that mean that the LDAP roles will be used instead of the Roles we defined in OER?

Q11:  When integrating OER with AD, Can coarse authorization be taken care at AD/
i.e. for example, if you want to restrict the log in of OER to a certain group (example: OER USERS) defined in AD? Will OER work be able to achieve this.  i.e. in the ldap.properties the baseDN would be ldap.baseDN=CN=\ OER USERS,CN\=Users,DC\=slab,DC\=bea,DC\=com instead of ldap.baseDN=CN\=Users,DC\=slab,DC\=bea,DC\=com
