DIP 11g 11.1.1.9.0: Mapping All the Values in OID so the RDN (i.e., CN) Value is Setup to Have the AD Username (samaccountname) Fails Validation Rule: The following required destination attributes are not mapped inetorgperson (Doc ID 2147636.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 11.1.1.9.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Oracle Internet Directory (OID) 11g 11.1.1.9 with Directory Integration Platform (DIP) synchronization from Microsoft (MS) Active Directory (AD) to OID.

Unable to use the "keywords" / rdn in DIP sync profile mapping.

Trying to change the mapping for CN from AD to OID, from default (CN in AD to CN in OID) to having the AD samaccountname mapped to OID CN instead.

Following documentation:

Oracle® Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle Directory Integration Platform
Chapter 9 Configuring Directory Synchronization
Section 9.4.1 Distinguished Name Mapping

Either the domain or the CN mapping rule fails validation, depending on the combination tried.

If forcing a validation and trying a DIP Tester Test synchronization, it fails with different errors depending on the combination used.

For example, having the profile DomainRules with:

Either:

dc=mycompany,dc=com:dc=mycompany,dc=com:

Or:

dc=mycompany,dc=com:dc=mycompany,dc=com:rdn,dc=mycompany,dc=com

And attribute mapping with:

samaccountname:::user:rdn::keywords:"cn="+(samaccountname)

Returns CN mapping validation failure:

The following required destination attributes are not mapped inetorgperson


Move the CN mapping rule to the top of the profile attribute mappings does not help.

( NOTE:  Incidentally, the documentation states using either singlequotes or doublequotes in the editing rule is allowed, but using single quotes returns error: Invalid char literal "'cn='". Should have length 1. )
