​It depends on what profile do you include in

1) Included ad.properties are defined in

​and here are attribute mappings:

      attrmap.map-principal-record.attr.PrincipalRecord_DN.map =

      attrmap.map-principal-record.attr.PrincipalRecord_ID.map =

      attrmap.map-principal-record.attr.PrincipalRecord_ID.conversion =

      attrmap.map-principal-record.attr.PrincipalRecord_NAME.map =

      attrmap.map-principal-record.attr.PrincipalRecord_PRINCIPAL.map =

      attrmap.map-principal-record.attr.PrincipalRecord_DISPLAY_NAME.map =

      attrmap.map-principal-record.attr.PrincipalRecord_DEPARTMENT.map =

      attrmap.map-principal-record.attr.PrincipalRecord_FIRST_NAME.map =

      attrmap.map-principal-record.attr.PrincipalRecord_LAST_NAME.map =

      attrmap.map-principal-record.attr.PrincipalRecord_TITLE.map =

      attrmap.map-principal-record.attr.PrincipalRecord_EMAIL.map =

      attrmap.map-group-record.attr.GroupRecord_DN.map =

      attrmap.map-group-record.attr.GroupRecord_ID.map =

      attrmap.map-group-record.attr.GroupRecord_ID.conversion =

      attrmap.map-group-record.attr.GroupRecord_NAME.map =

      attrmap.map-group-record.attr.GroupRecord_DISPLAY_NAME.map =

2) In case of LDAP, please take a look at include=<XYZ.properties> to find
out what profile are you using

No tool for that, you need to investigate properties files. Please start
reading README.profile in aaa-ldap package, which contains doc about the
structure of each file.
