Web Policy Agents 5.10

Profile Attribute Map

Maps a profile attribute to one or more HTTP headers for the authenticated user:

  • Key: LDAP attribute name, whose case must exactly match the identity store schema

  • Value: One or more HTTP header names. Underscores in header names can cause errors in some web containers. Either don’t use underscores in header names, or see your web container documentation for information about how they are managed.

To populate the value of profile attribute CN under CUSTOM-Common-Name, configure com.sun.identity.agents.config.profile.attribute.mapping[CN]=CUSTOM-Common-Name.

Make sure the case of your LDAP attribute name matches the case of the LDAP schema, otherwise you may see an error similar to the following: do_header_set(): SM_LOGIN (UiD) is not available in profile attributes

In most cases, in a destination application where an HTTP header name shows up as a request header, it is prefixed by HTTP_, lower case letters become upper case, and hyphens (-) become underscores (_). For example, CUSTOM-userid becomes HTTP_CUSTOM-USERID.

Format: profile attribute = HEADER-NAME(S)
