Use UPN as account name?

Former Member


  Running BOE XI4, and I have implemented a user synchronization using "LDAP" and "Windows AD".

My frontend authentication system uses the userPrincipleName (email address).

If it possible inside the CMC to set an "Account Name" as the user's UPN?  This would allow my authentication system to work without modification.

Hi Jason,

Every UPN account should have some domain. If you have details about the Domain name of the UPN, you can configure in CMC Win AD Configuration.

Enter this account in domain\user or format only (it will likely fail without a domain name).

The Default AD Domain must be the FULL DOMAIN NAME in ALL CAPS or child domain name where the most users that will be logging into Business Objects. This should exactly match default domain in the krb5.ini mentioned later in the document.

Please refer the below document for the same .

refer Section 3 - Configure the AD Plugin Page in the CMC and map in AD groups
