    *                      observed when a message is published    *
    *                      to a topic in a secured                 *
    *                      publish/subscribe environment.          *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    In a Publish/Subscribe environment with security enabled, the
    following exception is observed when a message ib publised to
    a topic:
    00000050 exception     1
    com.rbsg.application.cws.security.was.vmm.CWSAdapter
    getEntityByUniqueName
    com.ibm.websphere.wim.exception.EntityNotFoundException:
    CWWIM4001E  The 'uid=<unique_id>' entity was not found.
    The above exception is observed due to an explicit conversion
    of the username to lowercase. Since the username has been
    converted to lowercase, when validated against the repository
    which is case-sensitive , the above exception is observed
    

Problem conclusion

  • A custom property "sib.processor.userNameCaseSensitive" has
    been introduced, which when set to true would ensure that the
    username is not explicitly converted to lowercase but rather
    retains the username as is and then validates the username
    against the repository.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.25 and 8.0.0.5.  Please refer to the
