BIP Integration Issue with LDAP Authentication (Doc ID 2050040.1)

Last updated on MARCH 02, 2017

Applies to:

Siebel Reports - Version 8.1.1.11.11 [IP2013] and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 8.1.1.11.11 [IP2013] version, Reports integrated with BIP 10g 10.1.3.4

Customer has installed/configured BI Publisher and integrated with Siebel CRM (Life Sciences) using LDAP authentication. This works fine when logging into Siebel using SamAccountName against LDAP to authenticate.

Customer has a requirement to change the login name to email address and send mail attribute to LDAP to authenticate (LDAP returns SamAccountName) to Siebel which matches the Siebel User Name. Using the mail attribute to login to Siebel works as expected but as soon as I switch the authentication attribute to mail BI Publisher integration no longer works.
