It is possible to configure the user ID types used for users who smart card tokens will be issued to in the vSEC:CMS. 

User Directory Types

When the vSEC:CMS is configured to use an AD for user provisioning then it is possible to configure the retrieval of additional user attribute values from the AD. These attribute values can then be used to be associated with variables used as placeholders. For example, if the smart card is used in printing on the smart card during the issuance process it may be necessary to print additional information about the user onto the smart card. This additional information can be retrieved from attributes store in AD for the user.

To associate these variables to an AD attribute, select the card template and click the Edit button and click the Edit link for Issue Card. Click the Manage button in the User ID Options section and select the AD template and click Edit.

Click the Edit button in the Variable(s) section.

For example, if a variable name ${UserEmail} is associated with the AD attribute name mail. In AD, the attribute name mail will contain the user's actual email address, if this attribute is set in AD. Click Ok to save the association. Then from the ID Assign dialog it is possible to test this with an actual user. Click the Get ID button to search AD for a user. Select a user and click the Edit button in the Variable(s) section. Click the Test button. If the user has an email entry in the AD attribute then this information will be shown in the window.

Simple String Types

Issuing smart cards where the card template is set to assign a user identifier as Simple ID String allows an operator to set a string identifier that will be used to identify who the issued smart card was issued to.

It is possible to configure the length that the ID string identifier can be by selecting the card template and clicking the Edit button and clicking the Edit link for Issue Card. Click the Manage button in the User ID Options section and select the Simple ID String and click Edit. Enter the length that the identifier is allowed to be in the Length of generated ID string and click Save to save and close.
