Creating resources for directories that have the same name

We have a application that uses LDAP for authentication & authorization. There are multiple instances of this app installed and each instance of the app requires the same group names in the ldap structure for the authorization. For example:

Instance1
- Groups
--Billing Manager (cn=Billing Manager, ou=groups,ou=instance1...)
--Claims Manager
Instance2
-Groups
--Billing Manager (cn=Billing Manager, ou=groups,ou=instance2...)
--Claims Manager

Using the v4.7.2 UserApplication (idmdash), when we go to create a resource for "Billing Manager" for example, there are several of them to pick from (expected, each in a different OU). Is there a way to get the DN or a Description to appear in the value when picking them? Right now we just see the CN value and there is no way to tell them apart.

Thanks,
Mike

This can be configured in the Entitlement object in the IDM Driver that
connects LDAP system, in question.
You then need to do a code map refresh to see updated values.
