Ignore User Profile in OpenAM

There are 4 ways to control whether a user profile is required for authentication to be successful in OpenAM.

The default is Required and the next popular is Dynamic. I have never tried Ignored before. 

So I went ahead to test what to expect if Ignored is chosen.

1. I created a AD authentication module
2. I purposely ignored creating a corresponding AD data store
3. I even went to the extend of deleting the default OpenDJ data store

The following is the screen when my AD user successfully authenticated - "You've logged in".
The end user console is skipped from displaying.

A session is still created when you navigate to the Session tab in OpenAM Admin Console.
