Contributors netapp-lhalbert netapp-perveilerk

If you want to use an OpenLDAP server for identity federation, you must configure specific settings on the OpenLDAP server.

Memberof and refint overlays

The memberof and refint overlays should be enabled. For more information, see the instructions for reverse group membership maintenance in the OpenLDAP Software Administrator’s Guide.

Indexing

You must configure the following OpenLDAP attributes with the specified index keywords:

olcDbIndex: objectClass eq
olcDbIndex: uid eq,pres,sub
olcDbIndex: cn eq,pres,sub
olcDbIndex: entryUUID eq

In addition, ensure the fields mentioned in the help for Username are indexed for optimal performance.
