7021072: LDAP sync stops if a user has an attribute with no value

This document (7021072) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


Micro Focus Vibe 4.0.3


During LDAP sync against GroupWise as the directory, the sync process may stop if it encounters a user that has an empty value for an attribute that is being mapped in Vibe. For example, if a user’s email address was empty the LDAP sync would report this problem in the appserver.log and stop.

When this happens, the following error will appear in the appserver.log file:

2017-05-16 12:51:37,863 ERROR [http-nio2-8443-exec-4] [org.kablink.teaming.module.ldap.impl.LdapModuleImpl] – An error was encountered syncing users. Ldap sync will not continue.
