DIP 11g/12c Directory Synchronization: CN (RDN) Attribute Value is Changed to Uppercase in Destination Active Directory (Doc ID 2446575.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 21, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version to [Release 11g to 12c]
Oracle Unified Directory - Version to [Release 11g to 12c]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The directory synchronization from Oracle Unified Directory (OUD) to Microsoft Active Directory (AD) has been configured.
The CN (RDN) attribute value in the destination AD entry is always lowercase even if the CN attribute value in the source OUD entry includes uppercase.

For example, the synchronization profile has the following attribute mapping:

cn:1: :inetorgperson:cn: :User:
cn:: :inetorgperson:givenname: :user:

This mapping means that the source CN attribute value goes into the destination CN and GIVENNAME attributes. The value is mapped without change because the mapping rule (arithmetic expression) is not defined.

The following entry is created in OUD. The CN attribute value includes uppercase.

Source OUD Entry:

dn: cn=USER_01,ou=people,dc=SUFFIX_DN
cn: USER_01  <== Uppercase
sn: USER_01

The above OUD entry is synchronized to AD by DIP. Only CN attribute value becomes lowercase.

Destination AD Entry:

dn: cn=user_01,ou=people,dc=SUFFIX_DN
cn: user_01         <== Changed to Lowercase
sn: USER_01
givenName: USER_01  <== Kept Uppercase
