User Directory with filter having 2 attributes for ID-From-Login


We are trying to allow the user to log in with the uid or email address.
Even after creating a search filter to login with both Email ID/UID in User Directory definition, it does not get resolved to the ID entered by the user (ID-From-Login).

Is there a way to authenticate users with Email address or UID?


R12.0 SP2/SP3, R12.5, R12.51, R12.52


Yes, this is possible in below 2 ways:

1) Create 2 User Directory definitions (even for same user directory).
For the 1st directory mention user search filter as uid=, for the 2nd directory use email=, in LDAP User DN Lookup.

2) Else you will have to use SmWalker which is a Global Delivery Module to get this requirement fulfilled:
You can refer to the below link for details:
