Request For Information (RFI)


CA Strong Authentication does not have Licensing capabilities in-built into the product. To get the number of licenses the customer needs to run the query against the database and find out this required information.

If user base is in the database (Oracle DB or MS SQL Server DB), below query can be run -

select count(*) USERID from ARUDSUSER;

The above query reports on all users in the primary user table. To determine the number of users per Organization container (ARUDSORGANIZATION ) as defined in AuthMinder amend the query to:

select count(*) USERID from ARUDSUSER where ORGNAME = ‘YourOrgNameHere’;

If the customer is using the LDAP org, retrieve the count of active uses based on the attribute mapping for User Status in AA.

Here is the brief information about the approach to get the active user count.

  1. Get the information about the user status mapping attribute with LDAP. (eg : STATUS (Arcot-attribute) vs Attribute in LDAP e.g. : STATUS <--> AccountStatus
  2. Note that the STATUS=1 in #1 above indicates that usee is active user for AA transactions.
  3. Connect to LDAP and get the list of users for whose AccountStatus=1 (Active) for the BaseDN configured for the LDAP Organization in AA.
  4. The count of the user account status=1 is the Active User Count from LDAP.
