IDM 4.8.6 idmapps tomcat is broken when there are additional locales defined



After update to IDM 4.8.6 and having Finnish language configured as additional language, the catalina.out shows an error message "Unrecoverable error during creation of Permission Index".

    Hello Tami,

    I think this works fine since even in my environment it works fine,

    Kindly check, 

    Edit the /opt/netiq/idm/apps/tomcat/temp/permindex/fi/conf/schema.xml file.

    Comment out the following section:

    <!--    <fieldType name="text_${xx}" class="solr.TextField" positionIncrementGap="100">
            <tokenizer class="solr.StandardTokenizerFactory" />
            <filter class="solr.LowerCaseFilterFactory" />

    Restart the tomcat service: systemctl restart netiq-tomcat.service


    But also remember,this works fine until for some reason the permindex folder has to be deleted. The initial situation will be back again after restarting the tomcat service and the same change need to be re-applied.

    Thank you

    I had the same issue. I resolved it by just deleting the permindex folder and restarting user application.
