Repository reference settings


To configure a repository reference. A repository reference is a single repository that contains a set of identity entries that are referenced by a base entry into the directory information tree.

  1. In the admin console, click...

      Security | Global security

  2. Under User account repository, select Federated repositories from the Available realm definitions field and click Configure.

  3. Click Add base entry to realm.

When you finish adding or updating the federated repository configuration, go to the Security > Global security panel and click Apply to validate the changes.

Repository

Unique identifier for the repository. This identifier uniquely identifies the repository within the cell.

Expand the drop-down list to display a list of previously defined repository identifiers.

Distinguished name that uniquely identifies this set of entries in the realm

Distinguished name (DN) that uniquely identifies this set of entries in the realm.

If multiple repositories are included in the realm, it is necessary to define an additional distinguished name that uniquely identifies this set of entries within the realm. Overlapping base entries are not supported. You should not define two base entries where one is c=us, and the other is o=myorg,c=us in the same realm; otherwise a search returns duplicate results.

Distinguished name of a base entry in this repository

Specifies the LDAP distinguished name (DN) of the base entry within the repository. The entry and its descendents are mapped to the subtree that is identified by the unique base name entry field.

If this field is left blank, then the subtree defaults to the root of the LDAP repository.
