This attribute is used by the LDAP authentication module when the LDAP server is configured as an external LDAP server. It contains a mapping of attributes between a local and an external Directory Server. This attribute has the following format:
When this attribute is populated, the values of the external attributes are read from the external Directory Server and are set for the internal Directory Server attributes. The values of the external attributes are set in the internal attributes only when the User Profileattribute (in the Core Authentication module) is set to Dynamically Created and the user does not exist in local Directory Server instance. The newly created user will contain the values for internal attributes, as specified in User Creation Attributes List, with the external attribute values to which they map.
