Environment

 

AdminUI 12.8SP06

 

Cause

 

When upgrading to 12.8.06, a SiteMinder Policy Store data definition update is required.

There have been incremental changes with Policy Store data definition onward since 12.8.03 as well as in 12.8.06.

The changes are not big, but it enables additional OIDC-related enhancement feature to work.

When this is not done, some UI issues can be encountered, and possibly other issues in the future whenever a newer feature is accessed.

"CA.SM::MetadataTag" is the newly added field within 12.8.06 XDD files, go to directory ~siteminder/xps/dd, and one will find the string embedded in release 12.8SP06 XDD files, but not in any earlier versions.

 

Resolution

 

Update Policy Store data definition (1) file by running

  "XPSDDInstall SmMaster.xdd"

and this should bypass

  "Error: ps.attribute.doesNotExist CA.SM::MetadataTag.Category".

Meanwhile, please go over the Policy Store upgrade steps and verify if anything else is needed or missed (2). Some of the steps may or may not apply to all situations, but still should be checked.
