Managing User Accounts Via LDAP → Importing User Accounts From LDAP
To import user accounts from LDAP:
You may want to include objectClass=SBMSUser (or a similar value, depending on your LDAP configuration) in your search filter to return all LDAP users classified as SBM users.
If groups exist in your LDAP system that are similar to groups in SBM, include the group name in your search filter criteria. Other attributes such as organizational unit, department, and title might also be useful.
Consider common traits of users as you construct search filters. For example, (telephoneNumber=555*) returns accounts in which users have phone numbers beginning with 555.
Do Not Modify – Select this option to ignore LDAP user accounts that already exist in SBM.
Update Mapped Attributes – Select this option to update any mapped attributes that have changed in LDAP. This option is useful for updating information in existing SBM accounts while you import new accounts from LDAP.
Replace User/Contact – Select this option to replace existing SBM user accounts with the mapped and template user attributes. This option is useful for quickly modifying multiple user account attributes in SBM. For example, if a user is promoted to a managerial position, you can import that user based on a template from an existing manager's account. The unique database ID for the replaced user does not change so that ownership of primary items is not affected; however, all account attributes, such as product-access type, privileges, preferences, etc., are replaced. Because this option enables you to completely overwrite an existing user's account, use this feature cautiously.
