ldap fields

What are the actual field names used by the Okta LDAP agent to map data.

The LDAP we currently use stores the email address in a field called mail and has blank data in a field called email

The agent implies the data is pulled in from the email field, yet in practice it pulls the data in from LDAP

Hi Paul
I believe Okta uses "mail", which is the standard for LDAP. The "email" attribute is non-standard for LDAP.

Okta internally calls this field "email".

which is written for AD but most of it (including "mail") applies to LDAP (since AD is "mostly" LDAP)/

Thats just the type of document I was looking for.  Does the same exists for the LDAP?

Some of the fields are less obvious such as secondEmail
