Finding a user's distinguished name

When creating a hosted reseller or distributor service agreement, you will need DN's for some organizations and users.


  1. Open the Organization Administration Console.
  2. Click Access Management > Users. A list of users for the site displays.
  3. Make note of the user ID and organization of the user for whom you need a DN.
  4. Find an organization's distinguished name

    A user's DN takes the following form:

    uid= user_ID, organization_distinguished_name

    where user_ID and organization_distinguished_name are the user ID and organization DN you found in the steps above.

    An example of a user's DN is: uid=admin_user,o=A Special Organization,o=Distributor Organization,o=Root Organization
