Mask usernames in IBM AD Configuration Server

About this task

By default, all usernames are visible in IBM® AD Configuration Server. For security reasons, you can hide part of the username in IBM AD Configuration Server by modifying the configuration file.


  1. Go to <IBM ADDI Installation Folder>/IBM AD Web Services/wlp/usr/servers/ad_server/conf.audit/, open the file, and add the following line.
  2. Access Start Menu > IBM Application Discovery and Delivery Intelligence > Launch IBM Application Discovery Configuration Service Admin, go to the Dashboard tab, click the menu button of Audit Service, and select Restart Service.
    Note: Wait until the services are restarted, this can take a few minutes to complete.
  3. After Audit Service has been restarted, go to the Audit tab, where all usernames should be masked.
