Mapping attributes from AD
The mapping of AD
user’s fields to CPBM user’s fields is defined in the
Administration > Configuration > B/OSS Integration > Directory
Server section. The fields such as
email.mapping can be edited to specify the AD to
CPBM field mapping.
Also set the
handle.to.match.in.directory.server field in the
sAMAccountName is the principal
name/username field for a user in AD.
If you want to use
the user's email address or any other field such as username for the user,
sAMAccountName in the
handle.to.match.in.directory.server expression with
the appropriate AD field name.
For a given CPBM AD
Group/OU mapping, the import run:
- Creates a user if it is
present in AD Group/OU but not present in CPBM. The following fields from
active directory is used while creating the user:
- phone number
- language preference
- Language preference is set
only if the respective AD field contains the locale in the format compatible to
the ISO 639 alpha-2 or alpha-3 language code.
- Updates the user fields if
the user is present in AD Group/OU as well as CPBM. The fields that are updated
are first-name, last-name, email, phone number and language preference.
- If the user is present in
CPBM but not in AD Group/OU, the tool gives a warning in the report generated
indicating that "Following CPBM users cannot be found in AD". The admin has to
take appropriate action on this. Same is the case if the user is moved from an
AD group to other.
