Problem Description

Can Reporter process users names that are using the LDAP,  Fully Qualified Domain Name ( FQDN),  syntax?

What is the list of user name types Reporter can process in a access log?

On a standard access log bcreportermain_v1 from a ProxySG, the field name for user names is typically cs-username; can I use other field names in place of this?


Here is a list of user field names that Reporter is able to handle in a access log.

  • cs-user
  • x-cache-user
  • cs-userdn
  • x-radius-splash-username
  • x-cs-session-username
  • x-cs-user-credential-name

To ensure all the required fields are still in place we suggest you use the  standard access log type -bcreportermain_v1 - and  write a ProxySG policy to replace cs-username with any of the above fields .

NOTE1: We recommend replacing cs-username with cs-userdn for LDAP FQDN usernames.

NOTE2: If you are using IWA Realm configured on ProxySG and you would like to capture the user's actual name/Fullname in the accesslog, currently IWA can not query these user's full name on ProxySG. It will only see the user login name you use for authentication through ProxySG.
