Directory Services Attribute

Proxy Holder's Preferred Account UIN (tamuProxyHolderUIN)

Attribute details

LDAP tamuProxyHolderUIN attribute properties, usage and population rules
Definition: UIN associated with NetID account used by proxy holder to carry out delegated privileges.

When delegating privileges, an entry is created in the sponsored affiliates branch to capture the proxy target-holder relationship. If several account holders delegate privileges to the same person, this results in creation of a unique entry in the sponsored affiliates branch for each proxy target-holder pair.

For a proxy holder who has multiple proxy targets, tamuProxyHolderUIN can be used to link their proxy relationship entries in the sponsored affiliates branch to any entry they control in either the people or sponsored affiliates branch. By linking the entries together, a proxy holder can manage all delegated privileges using one NetID account rather than having a separate NetID account for each relationship.
