Setting Mapping Indicators


You determine the purpose of the mapping using the mapping indicators (Export, Import, Relative Distinguished Name (RDN), Filter, Required and System) in the Mapping group box. An SAP data field can be contained in more than one mapping for different purposes (for example, user name in the attributes sapUsername and cn(Common name)).


You have created the mapping.



       1.      In transaction LDAP, choose Server.

The system displays the Display “Server” View: Overview screen.

       2.      Switch to change mode.

       3.      Select the directory server for which you want to set the mapping indicators.

       4.      Choose the Mapping option from the Dialog Structure tree by double clicking it.

The system displays the Mapping Overview screen (transaction LDAPMAP). The name of the selected logical directory server automatically appears in the Server Name field.

       5.      Set the mapping indicators.

The indicators have the following meanings:




Mapping used for the search filter


Mapping used for import to the SAP database


Mapping used for export to the LDAP-compatible directory service


Mapping used for export to the LDAP-compatible directory service, without which the entry cannot be created

This indicator is used to fill fields that are only to be filled when an entry is first created in the directory, such as sn.


Relative Distinguished Name. Mapping required to create directory entries


Mapping used for system entries (Time stamp, and so on)

       6.      Choose Back to leave the Mapping Overview screen and save your entries.


You have set the mapping indicators and can now set the synchronization indicators as described in the Setting Synchronization Indicators procedure.
