6.13 Matching - By Attribute Value

This rule finds matches for objects by specific attribute values. Implement the rule on the Subscriber Matching policy or the Publisher Matching policy in the driver.

There are two steps involved in using the predefined rules: creating a policy in the Matching policy set, and importing the predefined rule. If you already have a Matching policy that you want to add this rule to, skip to Importing the Predefined Rule.

6.13.3 How the Rule Works

When an Add event occurs on an object in the source data store, the rule searches for an object in the destination data store that has the same values for the specified attribute. You must supply the DN of the base of the subtree to search in the connected system and the name of the attribute to match on.
