Issue/Introduction

Description:

The server log show security errors regarding the attributes in this task e.g "ERROR [ScreenHandlerBase] Unable to read attribute: <attribute_name> java.lang.NullPointerException"

Solution:

Make sure that the Base URL field for your environment (environment properties in idmmanage) is not setup with any other server hostname than the one used for your IM domain. e.g. If your URL for IM is set as http://myserver.domain.com:8080/idm/environment make sure your Base URL for the environment is set up also as http://myserver.domain.com:8080/idm/ any other abbreviation in the Base URL like http://localhost:8080/idm or http://myserver:8080/idm will cause this problem.
