Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server virtual member manager (VMM)         *

    *                      filter in get group membership call.    *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When using Active directory LDAP, memberOf is a membership
    attribute and if an entity type filter for a group is defined,
    VMM ignores it in the get Group membership call.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This APAR will fix the wrong behavior and will use the entity
    type search filter in the get group membership call.
    
    To enable this fix VMM need following custom property to be
    configured in VMM configuration :
    
    Use the following CLIs to configure the custom property :
    
    $AdminTask setIdMgrCustomProperty { -id  <LDAP_repo_ID> -name
    applyEntityTypeSearchFilterForGroupMembership -value
    true }
    
    $AdminConfig save
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.41 , 8.0.0.12 and 8.5.5.8. Please refer to the
