In this example we will use an x.509 certificate.

The first thing to check is to make sure UnitySync is pulling the correct attribute. Typically binary attribute names end in ;binary (usercertificate;binary). You must make sure that this syntax is used in your Sourcedef file in the attribs parameter. Please note that it is correct in the default sourcedef for an AD-AD connection but if you are using a different connection type, you can check it by using the steps for creating a custom sourcedef to look.

Using a custom Object Map file, add (or modify) the usercertificate attribute mapping to reflect this syntax:


The usage of [usercertificate] will tell UnitySync to sync every value in this attribute. If your attribute is single valued you can opt to use ^usercertificate ^, instead.
