Logical data attributes for users

The following table describes the logical attributes for the UNIX user object. Most of these attributes represent elements of the user's entry in the /etc/passwd file. The last two are specific to Centrify.

Logical attribute Type Description

Uid

int

The value of the user's UID in the UNIX profile.

UnixName

string

The user's login name in the UNIX profile.

Gid

int

The value of the user's primary group identifier (GID).

Home

string

The path to use for the user's home directory in the user’s UNIX profile.

Shell

string

The path to use for the user's shell in the user’s UNIX profile.

UnixEnabled

bool

Whether the user is allowed to log on to computers in classic zones.

This attribute allows a user profile to exist in a classic zone but not allowed to log on to any computers. Disabling user access is particularly useful for recording who used to own a retired UID. This attribute is not used in hierarchical zones.

AppEnabled

bool

Not used.

Note You might see this attribute if you have a legacy version of Centrify software installed in your environment.
