The method is configured by using the iManager Smart Card Login plug‑in. The method allows administrators to configure settings for the whole tree, partitions, containers, or individual users.
The plug‑in has the following options:
Global Settings: The global settings are used to specify policies for the whole tree. Options configured globally apply to all user objects in the tree.
Container Settings: If the container object is a partition root, the settings are effective for all user objects in the partition. If the container is not a partition root, the settings are effective only for objects in the immediate container. The settings do not affect users in subcontainers below the container.
User Settings: User settings apply to the individual User object.
Each setting is described below and identified as a global, container, or user level setting. Many settings can be configured on all levels. Settings configured at lower levels in the directory hierarchy override higher level configurations.
