Caused by: java.lang.StackOverflowError at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method) [rt.jar:1.8.0_71] at org.jboss.security.auth.login.BaseAuthenticationInfo.disableSecurityDomainInOptions(BaseAuthenticationInfo.java:131) [picketbox-4.0.21.Final.jar:4.0.21.Final]
Observed with IM r14.1.0 as a virtual Appliance implementation on CentOS.
A server log in DEBUG mode for "ims" category showed a huge abnormal activity in term of number of debug lines for a triggered access role object and ending with the java.lang.StackOverflowError. It appeared as a loop. Reviewing the definition of this particular access role showed a wrong Member Policy Rule definition.
This issue was caused by a Member Policy Rule of one access role "xxxxxxxx" which was: who are members of ( access role "xxxxxxxx" ) So the members of this access role were the members of this access role. This was a recursive definition that caused a loop and so the java.lang.StackOverflowError.
Reviewed the Member Policy Rule setting to make sense.
