How to Create User Mappings

Use this command to create one or more user mappings, as specified in the XML file. The following is an example XML file.

<sso>
<mapping>
<windowsDomain>domain</windowsDomain> 
<windowsUserId>WindowsUserName</windowsUserId> 
<externalApplication>Application name1</externalApplication> 
<externalUserId>App1UserName</externalUserId> 
</mapping>
<mapping>
<windowsDomain>domain</windowsDomain> 
<windowsUserId>WindowsUserName</windowsUserId> 
<externalApplication>Application name2</externalApplication> 
<externalUserId>App2UserName</externalUserId> 
</mapping>
</sso>

If a user account is changed, you must use this command to create a mapping for the new user account. You should also remove the old user mapping. For more information about removing a mapping, see How to Delete User Mappings.

After you create a user mapping, you must enable it before you can use this mapping in the SSO system. For more information, see How to Enable a User Mapping.

Only domain groups are supported for user mappings.
