Group page view access control not working in Business Space

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

You cannot give access to a Business Space page using groups, but have no problem giving access to individual users.

Symptom

You are unable to use groups to assign access to a Business Space page. For this particular error the group search gives zero entries in the trace with com.ibm.mm.*.


Cause

groupMemberIdMap is not configured correctly. "nsRole:nsRole" may not be used by all users. The LDAP administrator can provide the correct string to use. This has to be configured based on the environment.

For example, the user might be using the following LDAP configuration:

groupMemberIdMap="groupofuniquenames:uniqueMember", instead of
groupMemberIdMap="nsRole:nsRole".


Environment

All

Diagnosing the problem

Check if the user can be given access even though they do not have access belonging to a group that should have access privilege.
Check groupMemberIdMap and consult with the LDAP administrator to map the correct value.

Resolving the problem

Check groupMemberIdMap and consult with the LDAP administrator to map the correct value.
