Recursive LDAP Groups and Web Studio User Group Profiles (Doc ID 1042305.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 12, 2015

Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

You have nested/recursive LDAP groups with implicit membership of their parent LDAP groups but your Web Studio Groups members in these implicitly mapped groups are not able to access web studio. 

E.g. 
You have two LDAP groups G1 and G2, such that G2 is an implicit member (or subgroup) of G1. 

Now, a user U1 is a member of G2, but *not* a explicit member of G1. So: 

U1 is a member of G2 
G2 is a member of G1 
U1 is not an *explicit* member of G1. 

If you create a Web Studio profile based on G1, U1 cannot login. If you create a WS profile based on G2 it works as expected.
