You want to use a rule in Command Transformation Policy to change specific fields in the Oracle database SQL. If the functions 'if-src-attr' and 'Destination Attribute' are used, then the Remote Loader does not connect to the driver, and the following error occurs:

"java.lang.SecurityException: Authentication handshake failed: driver returned 'Invalid driver object password'"


To diagnose changes in specific fields in the database, use this function:

"if operation attribute 'Surname' changing"

<if-op-attr name="CN" op="changing"/>
<token-attr name="CN"/>
