Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version to [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The Fusion Middleware (FMW) Security Guide lists the User attributes and their corresponding mappings in each supported LDAP server (Table D-1). For example EMPLOYEE_NUMBER attribute is mapped to employeenumber in all the LDAP Servers. As a result of this mapping, employee numbers are displayed in the user's profile in WebCenter Portal (Portal => Profile => About).

This document provides details on how to map another user attribute in the LDAP Server (say, "EmpID") to a existing/seeded attribute in WebCenter Portal (EMPLOYEE_NUMBER).


If WebCenter Portal 12c, follow directions in the document below:
