Dynamic Apps Platform : Administering My webMethods Server : Attribute Providers : Using Attribute Providers : The LDAP Attribute Provider : Exposing LDAP Attributes from an External Directory Service
Exposing LDAP Attributes from an External Directory Service
The LDAP Attributes Provider displays user attributes that are exposed from an external directory service. You can expose selected attributes that are then available for the global wiring feature.
To expose LDAP attributes from an external directory service
1. As system administrator: Folders > System > Service* > Directory > Principal Attribute Providers > Provider_type.
where Provider_type is User Principal Attribute Providers or Group Principal Attribute Providers.
* You might have to click Next multiple times to find Service displayed in the table.
2. For Ldap Attributes, click the Tools icon and then click Properties.
You should now be on the Properties of LDAP Attributes page.
3. Under LDAP Attribute Names, click Add.
4. Type the attribute name exactly as it is used in the external directory service and click OK.
For example, the attribute name for email on a particular directory service might be mail.
5. Under LDAP Attribute Titles, click Add.
6. Type a display name for the attribute for use within My webMethods Server and click OK.
For example, for the mail attribute, you might type a display name of Email.
7. If you have multiple LDAP attributes, make sure the order in the LDAP Attribute Names and LDAP Attribute Titles lists are the same.
The order in which attributes and titles appear in the lists determine the order in which they are displayed in the Ldap Attributes panel on the Profile page.
8. Click Apply.
