On the Unique User ID screen, create an LDAP filter to identify user accounts to be provisioned (or updated) during SSO events. PingFederate uses this expression in conjunction with the Base DN value defined on the Location screen to locate existing account records and to add new ones.

Unique User ID

This screen appears only when an LDAP datastore is chosen on the User Repository screen.

  • Enter the statement in the Filter text field.
    The filter is in the form: attribute=${value}

    Unlike filters used to retrieve LDAP attributes for adapter mapping, do not enclose the statement in parentheses.

    The left-side variable is an attribute in your user-datastore. Click the link near the lower-left corner of the screen to see a list of available attributes.

    The right side of the filter generally uses one or more attribute values passed in from the SSO token. Variables for these attributes, including the correct syntax, are listed under JIT Attributes.


    If you are unfamiliar with writing LDAP queries, please refer to the documentation accompanying your LDAP installation.
