Error Messages

2015-10-20 12:45:11,041 [ WebContainer : 6] [ STANDARD] [ x] (.authentication.SchemePRCustom) ERRORx|x - Authentication failed because the constructed Data-Admin-Operator-ID instance failed to pass validation. The most likely cause for this is that your Data-Admin-AuthService record attempts to map directory attributes to PROPERTIES THAT DO NOT BELONG TO DATA-ADMIN-OPERATOR-ID class. Check your D-A-AuthService record for bad entries or typos.

Steps to Reproduce

Log in to system using PRWebLDAP1 servlet.

Root Cause

A software use or operation error. In prsysmgmt (SMA), the following logger is enabled:


The following error is generated in logs:

<PZ__>The page contains an undefined property: Operator.LastNameSrch
The page contains an undefined property: Operator.FirstNameSrch
The page contains an undefined property: Operator.MgrID
Validation failed: Errors Detected.</PZ__>

These properties were saved in a ruleset which was not available during authentication.


Re-save the Properties in to a ruleset which is accessible during Authentication.
