Can a customer use a unique organisational unit during user registration in a hybrid SmartCloud Notes environment?

Technote (FAQ)


Question

Can customers use a unique organisational unit during user registration in hybrid SC Notes environment?

Cause

When a customer registers a user in their on-premises directory, they can mention a unique organisational unit, which doesn't have a certifier for that organisational unit. The certificate item in the person document gets created using the parent certifier chosen while registering the user document .

Answer

Yes, the person document with unique organisational unit can be provisioned to the Smart Cloud Notes hybrid environment, as long as you have issued a Vault Trust Certificate from a parent certifier of the user ID file to the ID vault certifier.

A Vault Trust Certificate is a special-purpose cross-certificate that determines what IDs are allowed in the vault.

Please consider the below example, for further understanding .

User Name - John Wright/Research/Development/ACME

In the above example, /ACME is the organisational certifier, /Development/ACME is the Organisational Unit, and /Research is a unique organisational unit provided . The certificate item of that user person document, gets created using the parent certifier (/Development/ACME).
The above user person document can be provisioned, if the parent certifier (/Development/ACME) is chosen while registering the user document, has a Vault trust certificate to the ID vault certifier and is available on the SCN service directory.
