AM 7.2.0

Generic LDAPv3

Use these attributes when configuring Generic LDAPv3 compliant data stores:

amster service name: IdRepository

ssoadm service name: sunIdentityRepositoryService

ID

The ID of the data store configuration.

LDAP Server

host:port to contact the directory server, with optional |serverID|siteID for deployments with multiple servers and sites.

You must add =[n]= before the host:port, where n is an array index, starting with 0, of servers listed. See the example below.

AM uses the optional settings to determine which directory server to contact first. AM tries to contact directory servers in the following priority order, with highest priority first:

  1. The first directory server in the list whose serverID matches the current AM server.

  2. The first directory server in the list whose siteID matches the current AM server.

  3. The first directory server in the remaining list.

If the directory server is not available, AM proceeds to the next directory server in the list.

XUI

Default: host:port of the initial directory server configured for this AM server.

ssoadm

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-ldap-server

Default: =[0]=host:port of the initial directory server configured for this AM server.

You must add =[n]= before the host:port, where n is an array index, starting with 0, of servers listed. See the example below.

Example:

sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-ldap-server=[0]=localhost:51636|01
sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-ldap-server=[1]=openam.example.com:52389|02
sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-ldap-server=[2]=zzz.example.com:1636|01|02
sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-ldap-server=[3]=xxx.example.com:1636|01|02

LDAP Bind DN

Bind DN of the service account AM uses to connect to the directory server. Some AM capabilities require write access to directory entries.

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-authid

LDAP Bind Password

Bind password for connecting to the directory server.

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-authpw

LDAP Organization DN

The base DN under which to find user and group profiles.

Ensure that the identity store is setup with the specified DN before making any changes to this property in AM.

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-organization_name

Default: base-dn

LDAP Connection Mode

Whether to use LDAP, LDAPS or StartTLS to connect to the directory server. When LDAPS or StartTLS are enabled, AM must be able to trust server certificates, either because the server certificates were signed by a CA whose certificate is already included in the trust store used by the container where AM runs, or because you imported the certificates into the trust store.

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-connection-mode

Possible values: LDAP, LDAPS, and StartTLS

LDAP Connection Pool Maximum Size

Maximum number of connections to the directory server. Make sure the directory service can cope with the maximum number of client connections across all servers.

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-connection_pool_max_size

Default: 10

LDAP Connection Heartbeat Interval

How often to send a heartbeat request to the directory server to ensure that the connection does not remain idle. Some network administrators configure firewalls and load balancers to drop connections that are idle for too long. You can turn this off by setting the value to 0. To set the units for the interval, use LDAP Connection Heartbeat Time Unit.

ssoadm attribute: openam-idrepo-ldapv3-heartbeat-interval

Default: 10

LDAP Connection Heartbeat Time Unit

Time unit for the LDAP Connection Heartbeat Interval setting.

ssoadm attribute: openam-idrepo-ldapv3-heartbeat-timeunit

Default: second

A cap for the number of search results to return, for example, when viewing profiles under Identities. Rather than raise this number, consider narrowing your search to match fewer directory entries.

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-max-result

Default: 1000

Search Timeout

Maximum time to wait for search results in seconds. Does not apply to persistent searches.

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-time-limit

Default: 10

LDAPv3 Plugin Search Scope

LDAP searches can apply to a single entry (SCOPE_BASE), entries directly below the search DN (SCOPE_ONE), or all entries below the search DN (SEARCH_SUB).

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-search-scope

Default: SCOPE_SUB

LDAPv3 Repository Plugin Class Name

AM identity repository implementation.

ssoadm attribute: sunIdRepoClass

Default: org.forgerock.openam.idrepo.ldap.DJLDAPv3Repo

Attribute Name Mapping

Map of AM profile attribute names to directory server attribute names.

ssoadm attribute: sunIdRepoAttributeMapping

LDAPv3 Plugin Supported Types and Operations

Specifies the identity types supported by the data store, such as user, group, or realm, and which operations can be performed on them.

The following table illustrates the identity types supported by this data store, and the operations that can be performed on them:

Supported Identity Types and Operations
read create edit delete service

group

realm

user

Read the identity type

Create new identities of the given identity type

Edit entities of the given identity type

Delete entities of the given identity type

Read and write service settings associated with the given identity type.

You can remove permissions based on your data store needs. For example, if the data store should not be written to, you can set the operations to read only for the identity types.

The service operation is only relevant to the realm and the user identity types. For example, the Session Service configuration can be stored by realm, and a user can have specific session timeout settings.

ssoadm attribute: sunIdRepoSupportedOperations

Default:
group=read,create,edit,delete
realm=read,create,edit,delete,service
user=read,create,edit,delete,service

LDAP Users Search Attribute

When searching for a user by name, match values against this attribute.

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-users-search-attribute

Default: uid

Do not modify the value of the search attribute in user profiles. Modifying this attribute value can result in incorrectly cached identity data.

LDAP Users Search Filter

When searching for users, apply this LDAP search filter as well.

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-users-search-filter

Default: (objectclass=inetorgperson)

LDAP People Container Naming Attribute

RDN attribute of the LDAP base DN which contains user profiles.

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-people-container-name

LDAP People Container Value

RDN attribute value of the LDAP base DN which contains user profiles.

If specified, AM will limit searches for user profiles to the provided base DN. Otherwise, AM searches the entire directory.

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-people-container-value

LDAP User Object Class

User profiles have these LDAP object classes.

AM handles only those attributes listed in this setting. AM discards any unlisted attributes from requests and the request proceeds without the attribute.

For example, with default settings, if you request that AM execute a search that asks for the mailAlternateAddress attribute, AM does the search, but does not request mailAlternateAddress. In the same way, AM does perform an update operation with a request to set the value of an unlisted attribute like mailAlternateAddress, but it drops the unlisted attribute from the update request.

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-user-objectclass

Default: inetorgperson, inetUser, organizationalPerson, person, top

LDAP User Attributes

User profiles have these LDAP attributes.

AM handles only those attributes listed in this setting. AM discards any unlisted attributes from requests and the request proceeds without the attribute.

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-user-attributes

Default:
uid
caCertificate
authorityRevocationList
inetUserStatus
mail
sn
manager
userPassword
adminRole
objectClass
givenName
memberOf
cn
telephoneNumber
preferredlanguage
userCertificate
postalAddress
dn
employeeNumber
distinguishedName

Create User Attribute Mapping

When creating a user profile, apply this map of AM profile attribute names to directory server attribute names.

Attributes not mapped to another attribute (for example, cn) and attributes mapped to themselves (for example, cn=cn) take the value of the username unless the attribute values are provided when creating the profile. The object classes for user profile LDAP entries generally require Common Name (cn) and Surname (sn) attributes, so this prevents an LDAP constraint violation when performing the add operation.

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-createuser-attr-mapping

Default: cn, sn

Attribute Name of User Status

Attribute to check/set user status.

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-isactive

Default: inetuserstatus

User Status Active Value

Active users have the user status attribute set to this value.

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-active

Default: Active

User Status Inactive Value

Inactive users have the user status attribute set to this value.

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-inactive

Default: Inactive

Authentication Naming Attribute

RDN attribute for building the bind DN when given a username and password to authenticate a user against the directory server.

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-auth-naming-attr

Default: uid

LDAP Groups Search Attribute

When searching for a group by name, match values against this attribute.

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-groups-search-attribute

Default: cn

LDAP Groups Search Filter

When searching for groups, apply this LDAP search filter as well.

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-groups-search-filter

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-group-objectclass

Default: groupofuniquenames, top

LDAP Groups Attributes

Group profiles have these LDAP attributes.

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-group-attributes

Default: ou, cn, description, dn, objectclass, uniqueMember

Attribute Name for Group Membership

LDAP attribute in the member’s LDAP entry whose values are the groups to which a member belongs.

DN Cache Enabled

Whether to enable the DN cache, which is used to cache DN lookups that can happen in bursts during authentication. As the cache can become stale when a user is moved or renamed, enable DN caching when the directory service allows move/rename operations (Mod DN), and when AM uses persistent searches to obtain notification of such updates.

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-dncache-enabled

Default: false

DN Cache Size

Maximum number of DNs cached when caching is enabled.

ssoadm attribute: sun-idrepo-ldapv3-dncache-size
