Using Active Directory as an example, the following shows how to use a Custom Mapping to modify the Directory Server Attribute EEM utilizes to identify users.
The following example uses Active Directory, but the information can be applied to other Directory Servers and other Attributes as needed.
By default the EEM Active Directory configuration utilizes the sAMAccountName as the EEM user's Username and for authentication. In some
environments changing to another identifier is necessary, such as userPrincipalName.
To achieve this, EEM allows for Custom Mapping Directory Attributes.

EEM will now be using the Active Directory userPrincipalName for the EEM User Name attribute and for the users login into EEM.
