Q1: DIP synchronization from OID to Active Directory (AD) has been configured successfully, but there is a requirement to change the mapping of certain OID attribute values.

For example, the field "Known as" in OIDDAS User Profile is displayed with only the user's first name. It may be a business requirement to display the person's complete name.

The 'Known As' OIDDAS value corresponds with the displayName attribute in OID.

When users are synchronized from AD to OID the OID displayName attribute is usually mapped from AD attribute givenName, i.e.,

givenName: : :person:displayName: :inetorgperson

How to change this mapping?

Q2: After changing the Active Directory -> OID attribute mapping, how to update all users in OID with the new mapping?
