Error description

  • You can perform administrative tasks for group membership
    synchronization by using the syncGroupMembersForGroups and
    syncGroupMembersForAllGroups administrative scripts.
    
    When federated repositories is configured as the WebSphere user
    registry, the scripts assume that LDAP directories that are
    associated with federated repositories return identical user and
    group member distinguished names (DNs) when referring to the
    same user. However, specific LDAP directories deviate from this
    behavior by returning group member DNs in a letter case that is
    different from the one that was returned as result of an LDAP
    user search.
    
    Because IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) compares group member
    and user DNs when it synchronizes group memberships, mismatches
    occur and cause group memberships to be omitted.
