The logical data model for objects

This section describes the logical data model associated with each type of Centrify object. The data types used in the discussion of the logical data model, however, may not reflect the actual implementation of the data for a given zone type. For example, a user’s UID value might be stored as an integer in SFU zones or as a string in Centrify zones, but represented as an integer (int) in the logical data model.

Similarly, the names used in the logical data model may not reflect the actual Active Directory attribute names for a given zone type. For example, in Centrify zones, there are UNIX-specific attributes, such as the UID value, that are stored in an Active Directory object where the schema does not have a corresponding attribute, whereas the schema for SFU zones provides this attribute.
