Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Administration Guide

Proxy User

The Proxy User can take on any user’s privileges (for example, the organization administrator or an end user). The connection pool is created with connections bound to the proxy user. Access Manager creates a proxy user with the DN of cn=puser,ou=DSAME Users,dc=example,dc=com. This user is used for all queries made to Directory Server. It benefits from a proxy user ACI already configured in the Directory Server and, therefore, can perform actions on behalf of a user when necessary. It maintains an open connection through which all queries are passed (retrieval of service configurations, organization information, etc.). The proxy user password is always encrypted. Proxy User illustrates where the encrypted password is located in serverconfig.xml .

Example B–1 Proxy User In serverconfig.xml

<User name="User1" type="proxy">
cn=puser,ou=DSAME Users,dc=example,dc=com
