The Directory Server supports the ability to define sensitive attributes as a global configuration option so that they're automatically used across all client connection policies.
When working in an environment with multiple client connection policies, it can be easy to add a sensitive attribute definition to one policy but overlook it in another.
The following command adds the
employeeSSN as a global sensitive
attribute, which is applied across all client connection policies.
$ bin/dsconfig set-global-configuration-prop --add "sensitive-attribute:employeeSSN"
