Authoritative Data for Guests
Sponsored Guest data is stored in the campus directory (LDAP) and is therefore the authoritative source of all Sponsored Guest data.
This OU is used to store users who are identified as short and long-term guests, i.e. all user profiles that do not qualify as student, staff, faculty or other known affiliate types are stored under this OU.
Account Creation - When do records enter LDAP?
The CalNet Guest account information is added to the LDAP after a short delay, under ou=guests, and is assigned a new affiliate type: GUEST-TYPE-SPONSORED.
