APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In this scenario, the customer is integrating Tivoli Access
    Manager (TAM) with WebSphere Application Server and trying to
    configure Security role to  user / group mappings through the
    administrative console. When they click the " Security role
    to  user / group mappings" link, they were getting a
    ServletException  in app management console code due to the
    fact that the MapRolesToUsers form was not available because
    TAMMapRolesToUsers is being used when TAM is enabled.
    

Local fix

  • Customer can use wsadmin script TAMMapRolesToUsers instead of
    MapRolesToUsers.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server Version 8.5 Batch Function.          *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: A ServletException is encountered       *
    *                      when clicking on the "Security role     *
    *                      to user/group mapping" link in the      *
    *                      Job scheduler panel.                    *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    If Tivoli Access Manager (TAM) is integrated with WebSphere
    Application Server, the MapRolesToUsers form is not available
    for display since the TAMMapRolesToUsers form is used instead
    when TAM is enabled.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The console code was updated to include support for TAM.  If
    TAM is enabled, the TAMMapRolesToUsers form is now displayed.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.5.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
