ProcedureTo Create an Organization

  1. Click the Directory Management tab.

  2. In the Organizations list, click New.

  3. Enter the values for the fields. Only Name is required. The fields are:


    Enter a value for the name of the Organization.

    Domain Name

    Enter the full Domain Name System (DNS) name for the organization, if it has one.

    Organization Status

    Choose a status of active or inactive . The default is active. This can be changed at any time during the life of the organization by selecting the Properties icon. Choosing inactive disables user access when logging in to the organization.

    Organization Aliases

    This field defines alias names for the organization, allowing you to use the aliases for authentication with a URL login. For example, if you have an organization named exampleorg, and define 123 and abc as aliases, you can log into the organization using any of the following URLs:

    Organization alias names must be unique throughout the organization. You can use the Unique Attribute List to enforce uniqueness.

    DNS Alias Names

    Allows you to add alias names for the DNS name for the organization. This attribute only accepts “real” domain aliases (random strings are not allowed). For example, if you have a DNS named, and define and as aliases for an organization named exampleorg, you can log into the organization using any of the following URLs:




    Unique Attribute List

    Allows you to add a list of unique attribute names for users in the organization. For example, if you add a unique attribute name specifying an email address, you would not be able to create two users with the same email address. This field also accepts a comma-separated list. Any one of the attribute names in the list defines uniqueness. For example, if the field contains the following list of attribute names:

    PreferredDomain, AssociatedDomain

    and PreferredDomain is defined as for a particular user, then the entire comma-separated list is defined as unique for that URL. Adding the naming attribute 'ou' to the Unique Attribute List will not enforce uniqueness for the default groups, people containers. (ou=Groups,ou=People).

    Uniqueness is enforced for all sub organizations.

  4. Click OK.

    The new organization displays in the Organization list. To edit any of the properties that you defined during creation of the organization, click the name of the organization you wish to edit, change the properties and click Save.
