How to check if an AD account is disabled in CPPM with the userAccountControl attribute

This article talks about adding UserAccountControl attribute of AD/LDAP to CPPM.

 

Environment : This article best suits CPPM 6.2.

 

If CPPM is using AD/LDAP as an authentication source, It will authenticate any user which is present in the AD/LDAP even if the account is disabled if the AD/LDAP if the UserAccountControl attribute is not added.

Below are the steps to add this attribute.


Login to CPPM and navigate to "Configuration » Authentication » Sources"

This verifies that CPPM is getting userAccountControl attribute.

When value of userAccountControl  is 66050 then its disabled else the account is enabled.

We can use this attribute in our service.

Create a new Role Mapping Policy as shown below and we can map this our Dot 1 X service.
