Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server Liberty Profile                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: If * is used as the pattern to          *
    *                      search for all users                    *
    *                      or groups in LDAP User                  *
    *                      Registry it is noticed that no users    *
    *                      or groups are returned.                 *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    If * is used as the pattern to search for all users or groups
    in LDAP User Registry it is noticed that no users or groups
    are returned.
    When looking into the traces an exception is seen on the
    traces that points to a Regex error.
    

Problem conclusion

  • When * was used, the code was converting the pattern to .*
    which is not supported by LDAP. The code has been updated to
    prevent this change in behavior.
    
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack following 8.5.0.2. Please refer to the Recommended
