How to reference user's manager when importing LDAP for Insight

How do I bring in manager for a user when using LDAP import to populate objecttypes in Insight CMDB.  The manager in AD is listed in this format:  CN=Bob Smith,OU=New York,OU=IT, etc.

I don't want to use text for the attribute, I'm trying to convert this format into a user.

I did the following:
for the user object I have the distinguishedName attribute, then for the manager attribute on the import I have this object mapping:
objectType = Users and distinguishedName = ${manager}

You can find further information about the object mapping for the import here:
