Configure how a user entry is stored on the LDAP in order to allow OnBase to locate a particular user and its associated groups on the server.

Note:

Disabled LDAP users should also be removed from any LDAP group that is mapped to an OnBase User Group.

Setting

Description

LDAP Class Name

The name of the objectClass within the directory that is used to represent a user entry. This value varies, depending on how the network is set up. The suggested values are user for Active Directory and inetOrgPerson for NDS.

OnBase User Name Attribute

The name of the attribute within the user entry objectClass that corresponds to the user name within OnBase. The suggested values are samAccountname for Active Directory and uid for NDS.

Note:

Many configuration settings depend on how your network and directory device are set up. For example, if a login uses first and last names, the matching LDAP attribute for the OnBase User Name Attribute field is Common Name or cn.

Fullname attribute

The name of the attribute within the user entry objectClass that corresponds to the user's full name. This setting is optional and is used to populate the User's Real Name field in OnBase when a user account is automatically created in OnBase using LDAP user data (see Synchronize User Attributes on Auto-Logon).

The suggested values are name for Active Directory and givenname for Netware eDirectory.

Email Address attribute

The name of the attribute within the user entry objectClass that corresponds to the user's email address. This setting is optional and is used to populate the User's Email field in OnBase when a user account is automatically created in OnBase using LDAP user data (see Synchronize User Attributes on Auto-Logon).

Both Active Directory and Netware use mail for the Email Address attribute value.
