IAM Suite is the OOTB Application Domain created when OAM 11.1.2 is installed. This Application Domain can be renamed after installation but when upgrading OAM to 22.214.171.124.0, it must be renamed back to IAM Suite otherwise the upgrade operation will fail with the following error seen in the WLS admin logs.
java.lang.NullPointerException at oracle.security.am.common.policy.tools.upgrade.r2ps2.bootstrap.FedR2PS2Bootstr apHandler.createFedAuthnResource(FedR2PS2BootstrapHandler.java:505) at oracle.security.am.common.policy.tools.upgrade.r2ps2.bootstrap.FedR2PS2Bootstr apHandler.doBootstrap(FedR2PS2BootstrapHandler.java:151) at oracle.security.am.common.policy.tools.upgrade.r2ps2.bootstrap.R2PS2BootstrapH elper.doBootstrap(R2PS2BootstrapHelper.java:70) at oracle.security.am.common.policy.tools.PolicyComponentLifecycle.initialize(Pol . icyComponentLifecycle.java:99)
If the IAM Suite Application Domain has been renamed after installation, it is required to rename it back to its original IAM Suite name prior to beginning the upgrade process. After the upgrade process is complete, the name can be changed back to a custom name.
