LDAP, non english ou , exception

Jump to solution

How to configure ldap searchBase for tree with non english characters at OU= ? Can't change that names in system.

Tried:

1) save file with utf-8   and setting catalina.bat CATALINA_OPTS = -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 . JAVA_OPTS = -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8

2)changed collation of db using droping and restoring.

3) tried percent encoding like: OU=%AB%21%32

4) tried native win encoding cp1251

ldap.synchronization.groupSearchBase=ou=УЗЕЛ,dc=some,dc=corp

Have log:

2017-10-25 19:02:49,673 ERROR [org.alfresco.repo.security.sync.ChainingUserRegistrySynchronizer] [localhost-startStop-1] Synchronization aborted due to error

Any ideas?

Your problem isn't that the ou is not using English, rather it is using a non ASCII / ISO-8859-1 character set. You were already thinking in the correct direction of using encoding to handle these characters. Within the alfresco-global.properties file, you need to provide any special character as a unicode literal consisting of "\u" as a prefix and the hex value of the character. I.e. the German Umlaut "ä" would need to be provided as "\u00e4" inside the alfresco-global.properties file.
