The Directory Mapping: Auth/Az Mapping Dialog is where you create directory mappings that let you authenticate users against one directory and authorize users against another.
Directory Mapping Auth/Az Mapping Settings
The Directory Mapping: Auth/AZ Mapping dialog contains the following settings:
  • Authentication Directory
    Specifies the directory against which users will be authenticated.
  • Authorization Directory
    Specifies the directory against which users will be authorized.
  • Mapped DNs
    Contains radio buttons that determine how DNs are mapped:
    • Identical DN
      Maps the user's distinguished name (DN) exactly from the authentication directory to the validation directory. For example, if a user is located in an LDAP authentication directory and has a DN of uid=jsmith, ou=people, o=security.com, the exact string is used to locate the user in the validation directory. Therefore, the validation directory must contain the DN: uid=jsmith, ou=people, o=security.com.
    • Universal ID
      Matches the value of the Universal ID attribute from the authentication directory with the value of the Universal ID field from the validation directory to identify the user.
      The user attribute most commonly used as the Universal ID is Social Security Number (SSN). For example, if a company has different authentication and validation directories, the validation directory identifies a user who is authenticated because the SSN is identical for both user directories.
