Create a user that has just enough privileges to use as the Monitoring Credentials for an OUD directory server target in OEM12c.
The documentation shows an example using cn=Directory Manager.  However, the Directory Manager account should not be used for simple monitoring. 

By creating another root user that has the "Bypass ACL" privilege, it can collect all of the metric information for OEM 12c.
Since a user account will be able to make changes to the data stored in all suffixes if given the "Bypass ACL" privilege (and that type of access for that user is not required), what ACLs are needed to create a user or Root User with the minimum privileges to gather the information to monitor an OUD directory server using OEM 12c?

The following documents both refer to using cn=Directory Manager, which is not wanted.
