This rule places objects from the data store into one container in the Identity Vault. Implement the rule on the Publisher Placement policy in the driver.

6.16.3 How the Rule Works

The rule places all User objects in the destination DN. The rule sets the DN of the destination container as the local variable dest-base. The rule then sets the destination DN to the dest-base\CN attribute. The CN attribute of the User object is the first two letters of the Given Name attribute plus the Surname attribute as lowercase. The rule uses slash format.
