Attribute mapping for Profiles 

When the Profiles directory service is enabled, IBM Connections relies on the Profiles database to provide user data such as user name, ID, and email.

The internal name of the Profiles database is PEOPLEDB.

The following table shows the mapping relationships between Profiles, the Profiles directory service, Virtual Member Manager, and LDAP.
