Define attribute mappings for a domain

For information about how SecureTransport uses the default attribute mappings, see LDAP logins.

The session variables available depend on the attribute mappings:

  • The following session variables are always available: STSESSION_LDAP_AUTH_BY_EMAIL, STSESSION_LDAP_DN, STSESSION_LDAP_DOMAIN_ID, and STSESSION_LDAP_DOMAIN_NAME.
  • To enable STSESSION_LDAP_fdxGid, STSESSION_LDAP_fdxHomeDir, STSESSION_LDAP_fdxShell, STSESSION_LDAP_fdxUid, and STSESSION_LDAP_fdxUserType, select Map to Schema for the corresponding default attribute.
  • If you do not select Map to Schema for any custom mappings, all LDAP attributes are mapped to session variables named STSESSION_LDAP_DIR_ followed by the attribute name.
  • If you add a custom mapping, only those attributes added with Map to Schema selected are mapped to session variables named STSESSION_LDAP_DIR_ followed by the attribute name.

A multivalued LDAP attribute is mapped to several session variables. To use a multivalued LDAP variable, map it and check the SecureTransport session for the names of the session variables.

  1. If you do not have the New LDAP Domain page open, select Authentication > LDAP Domains and click the domain name in the Domains List to open the LDAP Domain page.
  2. Under Attributes List, for each SecureTransport attribute that will be mapped from an LDAP attribute, select Map to Schema to enable an attribute mapping.

You can modify a default attribute mapping.

  1. Click the Edit icon (Edit) in the Edit column.
  2. Type the new value in the LDAP Attribute Name column.
  3. Click the Save icon (Save) in the Edit column.

You can define a mapping for a custom LDAP attribute.

  1. Click New Attribute.
  2. SecureTransport adds a line to the Attributes List.
  3. Type the Description, ST Attribute Name, and LDAP Attribute Name.
  4. Click the Save icon (Save) in the Edit column.
  5. Select Map to Schema to enable the mapping.

To delete a custom attribute mapping, click X in the first column of the table.
