WAS Global Security Setup for IBM Bluepages please.

Thomas Loeber (62237750) | asked May 27 '13, 7:09 a.m.
I'm asking on  this forum if anyone has detailed information on how to setup Jazz authentication on WAS for using IBM Bluepages and Blue Groups.   I'm trying to set this up through the WAS console Security->Global Security using the Stand Alone LDAP registry dialogs.  Specifically I need the configuration details and the advanced settings.  if someone could post that here, it would be great and send it to me via an IBM email.  I've searched through the forum posts but haven't been able to glean what I need from the many posts.

 Hello Thomas

We have an internal technote that explains the process. If you have access to DCF database, you could search for Internal Technote#1322153 to get the procedure

Thank you for this pointer.  I went through this setup on WAS and restarted the server. When I tried to map my blue groups to the jts roles that are defined (Like JazzAdmin) my search returned nothing but this message.
The selected realm cannot be accessed at this time. You might need to start the server. Otherwise, you can use the following fields to add users by their unique user IDs.

One more piece of information is that once I followed the instructions that Krishna provided, I am able to log in to the WAS console using my LDAP identity in Bluepages, so the realm seems to be configured properly. I am just unable to map my LDAP Bluepage groups to the JTS roles because the search returns the message I provided  in my previous post.

Perhaps if someone could send me the actual screen shots from the WAS console of their Security->Global Security->Stand Alone LDAP registry configuration and the advanced LDAP user registry settings.  I'm using WAS 7.0. These are my settings.
Standalone LDAP registry.  (This is set as current)

 Hello Thomas

I found another developer works article that has a very descriptive configuration and instructions. This has all the configuration details too.

Anyone ever seen or more importantly solved "The selected realm cannot be accessed at this time." ?  I'm trying to migrate an upgraded ( 4.0.6 ) CLM into WebSphere 8.X.  I chatted with Tom who did solve, but he couldn't find the reference to share.

I too have run into this problem, "The selected realm cannot be accessed at this time." error while trying to configure WAS with bluepages for RTC.  As above I can login to WAS console with intranet id, but if I get the error when searching for users when trying to add more admin users.
Does anyone have a solution to this problem ?

thanks in advance

I think I may have a solution based on the fix in this.

I changed the setting from the trust below option to trust all saved it, then changed back to trust below and saved it.
The problem then seemed to go away and I could search for IDs without getting the error.  Very strange
