Question:

What values should be assigned to the ldap.propertyNameForLogin= statement in the server.properties file?

Environment:
CA Workload Automation DE 11.3.x, 12.x
Answer:

The values assigned to the ldap.propertyNameForLogin= statement depend on how the LDAP user's login names were configured in the LDAP server by the LDAP administrator.

If the user's login names were configured in the "cn" property of the Microsoft AD or Novel-eDirectory LDAP servers, then use;
ldap.propertyNameForLogin=cn

For the SUNONE LDAP it is
ldap.propertyNameForLogin=uid.

If the user's login names were configured in other than either the "cn" or the "uid" properties then the ldap.propertyNameForLogin= needs to be set so that the dSeries server could get specified property values and shows them as user's login names, for instance:

ldap.propertyNameForLogin=sAMAccountName
