bhold-flowing user's Manager attribute to BHOLD core RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a requirement to flow all user's manager value into bhold core.This is for setting up attribute based attestation.The problem with manager is "it is a reference type attribute in both AD and metaverse", so i need to create a reference attribute in bhold core for the flows to happen from metaverse to bhold .

    But there is no reference attribute type in bhold.Please can anybody suggest how to create a reference attribute in bhold.

  • Hello Shakti,

    Attestation in BHOLD is either "Application-based", "Role-based" (not Manager-based) or "File-based". If the Manager in your case is defined on OU-Level you can user Role-based Attestation.

    As per BHOLD Definition for Role-based Attestation:

    - the Steward's role must be available in the OU branch. that means in the specific OU or in one of the OUs above.  

    - there must be a Steward in the OU to be attested and must be linked to the Steward's role.

    In case this does not meet your environment, you can run File-based Attestation. The Definition file includes the Steward's Name seperated by the user Name to be attested. This works in any case. The file you need can then be produced by FIM (CSV-File Export MA).

    Hope this helps.

  • Create a manager string attribute in the MV that just holds the sAMAccountName of the manager and add it to the outbound flow to BHOLD.
