Error description

  • The SCIM 1.0 feature will return a 404 when searching for
    users. Typically the behavior will be accompanied with a
    EntityNotFoundException in the Liberty logs.
    
    This can occur when search results have been cached and one
    of the users in the search result has been deleted since the
    original search. This is most likely to happen  when paging
    through search results, but could also occur if the user was
    deleted during the search itself.

    ****************************************************************
    The SCIM 1.0 feature can sometimes return an HTTP 404 return
    code when searching for users. Typically the behavior will be
    accompanied with an EntityNotFoundException in the Liberty
    logs.
    
    This can occur when search results have been cached and one of
    the users in the search result has been deleted since the
    original search. This is most likely to happen when paging
    through search results, but could also occur if the user was
    deleted during the search itself.
    

Problem conclusion

  • SCIM 1.0 was updated to properly return an HTTP 200 return code
    instead of an HTTP 404 return code.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 19.0.0.7.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
