APAR status

  • Closed as Permanent restriction.

Error description

  • It has been identified that when user roles or security
    profiles have an '&' (ampersand) in them (eg. R&D or Systems &
    Networking) and then LDAP based authentication is attempted to
    be configured, those security profiles or user roles are not
    visible nor are any others that come after them.
    

Local fix

  • Change the name of the user role or security profile to use
    "and" instead of the '&' (ampersand) symbol.
    

Problem summary

  • Permanent restriction, problem was found but will not be fixed
    for now. We are working on a long-term plan of
    rewriting/refactoring the authentication modules to resolve
    security and usability issues.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Permanent restriction, problem was found but will not be fixed
    for now. We are working on a long-term plan of
    rewriting/refactoring the authentication modules to resolve
    security and usability issues.
