Sun Java System Access Manager 7.1 Administration Reference

Globalization Settings

The Globalization Settings service contains global attributes that enable you to configure Access Manager for different locales and character sets. The attributes are:

Charsets Supported By Each Locale

This attribute lists the character sets supported for each locale, which indicates the mapping between locale and character set. The format is as follows:

To add a New Supported Charset, click Add and define the following parameters:


The new locale you wish to add. SeeSupported Language Locales for more information.

Supported Charsets

Enter the supported charset for the specified locale. Charsets are delimited by a semicolon. For example, charset=charset1;charset2;charset3;...;charsetn

To edit any existing Supported Charset, click the name in the Supported Charset table. Click OK when you are finished.

Charset Aliases

This attribute lists the codeset names (which map to IANA names) that will be used to send the response. These codeset names do not need to match Java codeset names. Currently, there is a hash table to map Java character sets into IANA charsets and vice versa.

To add a New Charset Alias, click Add button and define the following parameters:

MIME name

The IANA mapping name. For example, Shift_JIS

Java Name

The Java character set to map to the IANA character set.

To edit any existing Charset Alias, click the name in the table. Click OK when you are finished.

Auto Generated Common Name Format

This display option allows you to define the way in which a name is automatically generated to accommodate name formats for different locales and character sets. The default syntax is as follows (please note that including commas and/or spaces in the definition will display in the name format):

en_us = {givenname} {initials} {sn}

For example, if you wanted to display a new name format for a user (User One) with a uid (11111) for the Chinese character set, define:

zh = {sn}{givenname}({uid})

The display is:

OneUser 11111
