You can configure user identification options to:
- Increase the directory efficiency of binding the simple username to the DN.
- Provide a link between the simple username and the DN in directories where the link does not exist, to allow directory users to logon with a simple username.
|Using Identity Mapping||An identity map defines a pattern and a rule that identifies the structure of the DN and how it relates to the simple user name.
|Using Identity Searches||An identity search describes search criteria that LDAP uses to locate the user in the directory, and also allows you to specify the search scope and a filter, for a more precise search.
You can configure both identification options concurrently, if needed. See Using Multiple IdentityMap and IdentitySearch Elements in Combination.
