Description Ondrej Lukas 2016-01-08 03:40:10 EST
In case when ldap authorization with principal-to-group group searching is used in security realm and LDAP entry found by value of 'group-attribute' does not include attribute mentioned in 'group-name-attribute' then it causes authentication fail. It is caused by missing null check for groupNameAttr and hidden NPE thrown from [1].

Steps to reproduce:
1) use following security domain:
            <security-realm name="ldap-security-realm">
                    <ldap connection="ldap_connection" base-dn="dc=jboss,dc=org" recursive="true">
                        <username-filter attribute="uid"/>
                    <ldap connection="ldap_connection">
                        <group-search group-name="SIMPLE" iterative="false" group-dn-attribute="dn" group-name-attribute="description">
                            <principal-to-group group-attribute="sn"/>
            <ldap name="ldap_connection" url="ldap://localhost:10389" search-dn="uid=admin,ou=system" search-credential="secret"/>

2) Use this security domain for RBAC access to management console:
            <native-interface security-realm="ManagementRealm">
                <socket-binding native="management-native"/>
            <http-interface security-realm="ldap-security-realm">
                <socket-binding http="management-http"/>
        <access-control provider="rbac">
                <role name="SuperUser">
                        <user name="$local"/>
                        <group name="JBossAdmin"/>

3) Use ldap server with attached ldif

4) Try to access management console with jduke/Password - it will fail.

5) Uncomment line 'description: Monitor' from ldif and try to access management console again - it will be successful.
