Last updated on FEBRUARY 20, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Virtual Directory - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Attempting to transform  AD Groups to LDAP Group format.

Using OVD 11g ChangeUserRDN plugin and Virtual Attribute Plugin

Group detail in AD:

dn: CN=ng-test,OU=GROUPS,DC=COMPANY,DC=com
member: CN=User1\, Test1,OU=Users,DC=COMPANY,DC=com
member: CN=User2\, Test2,OU=Users,DC=COMPANY,DC=com

Following are the SAMACCOUNTNAME values for the group members:

CN=User1\, Test1,OU=Users,DC=COMPANY,DC=com

CN=User2\, Test2,OU=Users,DC=COMPANY,DC=com

Attempting to translate the uniquemember attributes to be returned by OVD to look like:

dn: CN=ng-test,OU=GROUPS,DC=netapp,DC=com
uniquemember: uid=test1user1,OU=Users,DC=COMPANY,DC=com
uniquemember: uid=test2user2,OU=Users,DC=COMPANY,DC=com


Plugins configured like the following:

Two plugins configured
                    <param name="fromRDN" value="cn"/>
                    <param name="toRDN" value="uid"/>
                    <param name="AddAttribute" value="uid=%samaccountname%"/>
  IF DN of member contains /
  then translation does not occur.

RESULTS are the following:

dn: CN=ng-test,OU=GROUPS,DC=netapp,DC=com
uniquemember: CN=User1\, Test1,OU=Users,DC=COMPANY,DC=com
uniquemember: CN=User2\, Test2,OU=Users,DC=COMPANY,DC=com

Users with NO special characters are translated properly.
