39 Oracle Platform Security Services

This chapter describes notes on topics associated with Oracle Platform Security Services (OPSS), in the following sections:

The following documents are relevant to topics included in this chapter:

39.1 Configuration Issues and Workarounds

This section describes configuration issues and their workarounds. It includes the following topics:

39.1.1 Oracle Fusion Middleware Audit Framework

This section describes configuration issues for the Oracle Fusion Middleware Audit Framework. It contains these topics: Configuring Auditing for Oracle Access Manager

Although Oracle Access Manager appears as a component in Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control, you cannot configure auditing for Oracle Access Manager using Fusion Middleware Control. Audit Reports do not Display Translated Text in Certain Locales

The standard audit reports packaged with Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher support a number of languages for administrators. Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher can start in different locales; at start-up, the administrator can specify the language of choice by setting the preferred locale in Preferences.

Due to this bug, if Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher is started on any of these 3 locales:

  • zh_CN (simplified chinese)

  • zh_TW (traditional chinese)

  • pt_BR (portuguese brazilian)

then users cannot see the report in that locale (the entire report including labels, headers, titles and so on appears in English), while the other locales display the translated text as expected. For example, when Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher is started in zh_CN, the text cannot be seen in zh_CN even though the preferred locale is set to zh_CN; information is displayed in English.

This issue will be fixed in a future release of Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher. Audit Reports Always Display in English

The standard audit reports packaged with Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher support a number of languages.

Due to this bug, report titles and descriptions are displayed in English even when they have been translated.

This issue will be fixed in a future release of Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher.

39.1.2 Trailing '\n' Character in Bootstrap Key

In 11gR1, the process that reassociates XML to LDAP stores creates a bootstrap key with the trailing new line character '\n', or its equivalent code '&#xA'. This key value is written in the file jps-config.xml and stored in the wallet. In both places, the key value contains the trailing character '\n'.

When reusing that same wallet in 11gR1 PS1, upon retrieving the bootstrap key, the system trims out the trailing '\n' character; but the key value in the wallet, however, still contains the trailing character, a situation that leads to errors since the requested and stored key values no longer match.

To resolve this issue, proceed as follows:

  1. Use the WLST command modifyBootStrapCredential to reprovision wallet credentials without trailing '\n'. For details on the command usage, see section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Security Guide.

  2. Manually edit the file jps-config.xml and remove the trailing characters '&#xA' from any bootstrap key.

This problem arises only in the scenario above, namely, when an 11gR1 wallet is reused in 11gR1 PS1; in particular, when reassociating in an 11gR1 PS1 environment, the above trailing character is not an issue.

39.2 Authorization Policy Manager Issues

This section describes issues and workarounds with Authorization Policy Manager, in the following sections:

39.2.1 Error Message While Searching Application Roles

If you encounter an error while performing an application role search that includes the message:

An error has occurred. Please view the logs for details

and the error logged includes a PolicyStoreOperatioNotAllowedException similar to the log illustrated in the following fragment (and found in the file apm_server1-diagnostic.log):

[2010-03-02T22:06:29.998-08:00] [apm_server1] [ERROR] [] 
[] [tid: [ACTIVE].ExecuteThread: '4' for queue: 
'weblogic.kernel.Default (self-tuning)'] [userId: weblogic] [ecid: 
0000ISYcUY2B1FcpPg1Fid1BXsJn00006W,0] [APP:]   
PolicyStoreException while calling searchAppRole[[
n: javax.naming.OperationNotSupportedException: [LDAP: error code 53 - Parent 
entry not found in the directory.];... 

then retry the operation, which should then run without errors.

39.2.2 Some Errors/Warnings in Authorization Policy Manager Display Server Locale

Errors and warnings in Authorization Policy Manager display the server locale and not the browser locale. There is no workaround to this issue.

39.2.3 Support for Internet Protocols

Authorization Policy Manager components support the following Internet Protocol versions:

  • Oracle database on IPv4 host

  • Authorization Policy Manager server on IPv4/IPv6 dual-stack host

  • Client (browser) on either IPv4 or IPv6 hosts

39.2.4 Authorization Policy Manager Patch Installation Fails on 64-bit Operating Systems

To work around this issue, in Windows or UNIX/Linux 64-bit operating systems, proceed as follows:

  1. Set the variables ORACLE_HOME and PATH as explained in the README.TXT file included in the patch.

  2. Run OPatch as illustrated in either of the following invocations:

    > OPatch -jre <64-bit java home location> lsinventory
    > OPatch -jdk <64-bit java home location> lsinventory

    A successful run returns Opatch succeeded; otherwise, verify that the passed location is valid.

  3. Change directory to the patch location:

    > cd <patch location>
  4. Run OPatch as illustrated in either of the following invocations:

    > OPatch -jre <64-bit java home location> apply
    > OPatch -jdk <64-bit java home location> apply
