Error description

  • When browsing a security namespace there will be a search query
    sent to the authentication provider asking for the defaultName
    of the user who has been logged in to the system first after the
    system was setup.??E.g.: After a new system was setup, user 'A'
    was the first who logged in. Now, when you do the browsing of
    the namespace in Cognos Connection there will be a search
    request for user 'A', regardless of the user who currently is
    logged in.??This behavior was tested and reproduced with a
    Custom Java Authentication Provider and a general LDAP
    authentication provider.
