Does Spectrum and Oneclick support "O" notation used with OpenLDAP / OpenOTP for authentication?

In the past we've setup Oneclick successfully with MS Active Directory.

However, we now have a customer that uses openotp, which does not uses the DC notation, but the O notation.

Which means the Base User directory is like: cn=spectrum_oneclick,ou=Groups,o=Root and the connection name like


We now always get the error: SPC-OCA-10488: Either the user name does not exist in the external authentication database or the entered password is Invalid.

Can you confirm this should work with the O notation as well and Openldap systems?



Release : 20.2.x, 10.x

Component : Spectrum Core / SpectroSERVER


Spectrum and EEM do not support the "O" Notation


Spectrum and EEM do not support an "0" notation that is being used by OpenLDAP, we only support the standard "dc" notation that is used in LDAP.


Additional Information

As an alternative the customer can use Siteminder to integrate with Spectrum and use radius / tacacs authentication instead of LDAP.
