 Configuring the Embedded LDAP Server
 Configure the embedded LDAP server
 Creating Content Server Roles
 Mapping Content Server Roles to the Embedded LDAP Groups
 Mapping Content Server Accounts to the Embedded LDAP Groups
 To map Content Server Accounts to LDAP groups, precede the groups with an @ symbol.  Use standard naming conventions such as @account_rwda.  It is assumed that accounts are already enabled on the Content Server.  If you wish to map arbitrary values see the section below.

 Edit the JPS provider in WCC (Administration -> Providers).
 The WCC managed server needs to restarted after editing the provider.
 Mapping Arbitrary Values with a Credentials Map
 Credential maps solve the problem of creating groups in your external directory server that match the names used in WCC for roles and accounts.  In order to use Credential Mapping the ProxyConnections component needs to be enabled on the UCM managed server.  This component is enabled by default.
