Subject: Re: [xacml-users] Policy for Conformance Test IIC008 issue?


I looked up the actual description of what is being tested here
(in the html file describing all tests).  The description in the
policy itself is incorrect.  But the test is testing for correct
handling of an empty bag passed to a function.  There is no
"convicted-felon" attribute in the corresponding Request, so the
bag will be empty, and the result is NotApplicable.
