6.17 Placement - Subscriber Flat - LDAP Format

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

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

  2. Click the Placement Policy object on the Subscriber channel.

  3. Click Insert.

6.17.3 How the Rule Works

This 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 be uid=unique name, dest-base. The uid attribute of the User object is the first two letters of the Given Name attribute plus the Surname attribute as lowercase. The rule uses LDAP format.
