Identity Manager 9.2 - LDAP Connector for CA Top Secret Reference Guide

Initializing and configuring the LDAP connector for CA Top Secret

This document describes how to initialize and configure the Top Secret LDAP connector into an existing One Identity Manager system. This allows the One Identity Manager system to access, read, and update data stored in a Top Secret database on an IBM mainframe.

Detailed information about this topic


  • The IBM mainframe must have CA LDAP Server for z/OS installed and configured.
  • An LDAP service account must be created on your Top Secret server that has the appropriate permissions to administer users and groups on this platform. The account must be given sufficient privileges so that the profiles being administered fall within the scope of the Admin user.

NOTE: Before attempting to connect to the CA LDAP Server with the Top Secret LDAP connector, first check that the LDAP server is running correctly. This can be tested with any LDAP browser, for example, the LDP.exe tool from Microsoft. For more information, see your LDAP browser documentation.

Platform support

The Top Secret LDAP connector has been verified for synchronization against the IBM mainframe running CA Top Secret r16.0 or later.

Operating constraints

  • There is an eight-character limit for user and group names on Top Secret.

  • There is an eight-character limit for passwords on Top Secret.
