My tomcat server send exception about invalid characters with a role name "ubx:5485" ;

My first question is : why ? ;o)

and I would like find specifications about valid characters for a role name.

do you have some solution , because I used Ldap connection, and all my groups are this format "xx:yyy:zzz" .

Thanks a lot ,

Thanks for the report. The problem was the generation of the associated MBean. This has been fixed for trunk, 8.0.x (for 8.0.29) and 7.0.x (for 7.0.66). It has been proposed for 6.0.x.

Comment 3 Fred 33 2015-10-28 08:08:09 UTC

the version of my tomcat server is 7.057 , and not 6.x

Comment 4 Violeta Georgieva 2015-10-28 08:44:58 UTC

The issue is fixed for Tomcat 7 and Tomcat 8.
We moved the issue to Tomcat 6 and proposed a fix there, because of this the version now is Tomcat 6.

Fixed in 6.0.x for 6.0.45 onwards.
