When I change IDM user CN.the samaccountnam doesn't change

Hi

I try to connect the IDM with an AD, I want to set up when I change IDM user CN.the samaccountname must change too.
Now When I Change IDM CN the userprincipalname is change only but the samaccountname is not.

**note
In the filter policy sync value is set as sync already in each attribute.


thanks.

The mapping is not so direct between CN in IDM and CN/sAMAccountName/UPN in AD

That is a mistake, you should not have CN to sync in both directions. This will
cause errors. See this old KB article.
https://support.microfocus.com/kb/doc.php?id=10100761

For a modern AD driver, generally: CN should be subscriber=ignore and
publisher=notify. (for Users)

There are options under "Name Mapping Policy" in GCVs you should use instead.
IIRC

Logon Name Mapping=true
User Principal Name Mapping: Follow Identity Vault name
