Authentication Occurs 4 Times Simultaneously During One Log In Attempt (Doc ID 2216115.1)

Last updated on APRIL 07, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Agile PLM MCAD Connector - Version 3.4.0 to 3.4.0 [Release 3.4.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

A user keys in their password incorrectly once during sign in and MCAD authentication locks them out of Active Directory that is set for 3 attempts.

The environment is using account lockout settings in Weblogic. When a user types the wrong password it counts 4 times against the number of bad passwords
before lockout. This happens in MCAD but not the web client nor Java client.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Try to login to MCAD using the wrong password.
2. Notice the lock out.
