To bind to LDAP, Teradata Viewpoint authentication must know the DN of User1. When logging in, User1 presents a corporate username, which is usually part of the DN. Using the following DN as an example:
- If the corporate username for User1 is joec and the username is in the DN, perform a DN pattern bind.
If the corporate username for User1 is customerjoe, which is the sAMAccountName attribute from the LDIF snippet below, the username is not in the DN.
DN: CN=joec,OU=User Accounts,DC=td,DC=acme,DC=com CN: joec givenName: Joe SN: Customer telephoneNumber: +1 888 555 6789 telephoneNumber: +1 888 555 1232 mail: [joe.customer@acme|mailto:joe.customer@acme].com sAMAccountName: customerjoe objectClass: inetOrgPerson memberOf: CN=Sales,OU=Groups,DC=td,DC=acme,DC=com memberOf: CN=DBA,OU=Groups,DC=td,DC=acme,DC=com ...
Search the LDAP tree for a user entry where the attribute matches the username value presented by User1.
