Dear All,

I have a custom attribute added to User OU, I want to store multiple
information in this attribute like in an table:

Application Name1 , User Name1, Password1
Application Name2 , User Name2, Password2

etc...

There could be many application with different user names and password
for any given user.

what would you recommend?

Thanks,
Suresh

It seems most appropriate to use a multivalued attribute for this type of
thing. You might also want to consider encrypting the data since it appears
to be pretty sensitive in nature. If you intend to include three pieces of
data in one "entry", you'll need to devise some sort of encoding method to
separate the various elements like a separator character.
