Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Release Notes

Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Patch 1

Access Manager 7 2005Q4 patch 1 (revision 01) fixed a number of problems, as listed in the README file included with the patch. Patch 1 also includes the following new features and known issues:

Creation of Debug Files

Access Manager debug files are created by default in the debug directory, even when property in the file is set to error. Before Access Manager 7 patch 1 was released, a debug file was created only when the first debug message was logged to the file.

Support for Roles and Filtered Roles in the LDAPv3 Plug-in

Access Manager 7 patch 1 adds support for roles and filtered roles in the LDAPv3 plug-in, if the data is stored in Sun Java System Directory Server. For more information, see Document the roles and filtered roles support for LDAPv3 plug-in (6365196).

CR# 6320475: on server side must not be true

The property in the file on the server side is set to false by default and should never be reset to true.

CR# 6358751: Access Manager 7 patch 1 apply fails if the there are embedded spaces in the encryption key

If the password encryption key contains spaces, applying the patch fails.

Workaround. Use a new encryption key that includes no spaces. For the detailed steps to change the encryption key, see: Appendix B, Changing the Password Encryption Key, in Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Deployment Planning Guide.
