Connecting to the LDAP using user short names

Connecting to the LDAP 

The Soffid LDAP accepts the usual way to connect to the LDAP service using the distinguished name and password for the user.

Additionally, one can use the uid attribute to login. Then for the user:

dn: cn=user,ou=test,dc=soffid,dc=com

cn: user

givenName: John

sn: Snow

uid: jsnow

userPassword: secret

The user can use one of these two ways to login to the LDAP server:

  1. USER: cn=user,ou=test,dc=soffid,dc=com   PASSWORD: secret
  2. USER: uid=jsnow,dc=soffid,dc=com PASSWORD: secret
