Release Information

Statement introduced in Release 8.5 of Junos OS.


Specify the base distinguished name (DN), which can be used in one of the following ways:

  • If you are using the assemble statement so that the user's distinguished name is being assembled, the base distinguished name is appended to a username to generate the user's distinguished name. The resulting distinguished name is used in the LDAP bind call.

  • If you are using the search statement so that the user's distinguished name is found by a search, the search is restricted to the subtree of the base distinguished name.


base-distinguished-name—Series of basic properties that define the user. For example in the base distinguished name o=juniper, c=us, where c stands for country, and o for organization.
