The LDAP integration references an LDAP object by its distinguished name (DN). A DN is a sequence of relative distinguished names (RDN) connected by commas.

An RDN is an attribute with an associated value in the form attribute value; normally expressed in a UTF-8 string format. The following table lists typical RDN attribute types.

A LDAP entry is made up of a collection of attributes that have a unique identifier called a Distinguished Name (DN). A DN has a unique name that identifies the entry at the respective hierarchy. In the example, John Doe and Jane Doe are different common names (cn) that identify different entries at that same level.

A DN is also a fully qualified path of names that trace the entry back to the root of the tree. For example, the distinguished name of the John Doe entry is:

cn = John Doe, ou = People, dc =

A Relative Distinguished Name (RDN) is a component of the distinguished name. For example, cn=John Doeou=People is a RDN relative to the root RDN
