--------------------------------------------

             Summary: The PLAIN SASL bind does expect a DN in the authcid field. We should
allow the definition of an AT
                 Key: DIRSERVER-1817
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSERVER-1817
             Project: Directory ApacheDS
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Emmanuel Lecharny
            Priority: Minor


Right now, we are expecting the user to provide a full DN in the authcid part of the SASL
PLAIN bind. It would be very convenient to allow the user to provide a simple name, and to
configure the server to look at a specific AT to fetch the entry.

For instance, we can decide that the uid Attribute is the one to look for when searching the
authcid. We will then do a search for (uid=<authcid>) and check the userPassword from
the found entry.

Another option : we could ad dn: for DN values, and u: for plain text values (with a default
to u:).

The AttributeType to use should be configurable.
