IssueWhen testing AFX connector capability "Add Account to AD Group" in RSA Via L&G, the test fails with the following error:
 
org.mule.api.transformer.TransformerMessagingException: Search for attributes for 
CN=ATgroup1\,OU=AT\,OU=vcloud Users\,DC=2k8r2-vcloud\,DC=local,OU=AU,OU=vcloud Users,
DC=2k8r2-vcloud,DC=local returned empty.
The entry may not exist. Aborting request! (java.lang.IllegalArgumentException)

(org.mule.api.transformer.TransformerException). Message payload is of type: String


User-added image
CauseThe original input parameter passed as the Group attribute does not contain 'CN=' at the beginning of the input string. As a result, the "Group DN Suffix" defined in the connector definition is appended to the end of the search string and thus the search string is no longer valid.

Note the search string returned in the error message:
 
CN=ATgroup1\,OU=AT\,OU=vcloud Users\,DC=2k8r2-vcloud\,DC=local,OU=AU,OU=vcloud Users,DC=2k8r2-vcloud,DC=local

The input parameter entered to test the connector capability was:
 
     ATgroup1\,OU=AT\,OU=vcloud Users\,DC=2k8r2-vcloud\,DC=local

The Group DN suffix defined for the connector has been appended to the end of the search string. The Group DN suffix is defined under "Distinguished Name" under the connector settings:
 
     OU=AU,OU=vcloud Users,DC=2k8r2-vcloud,DC=local

ResolutionTo resolve this issue add CN= to the beginning the group attribute that is being passed to the AFX connector, as in the example here:
