Considerations for the LDAP service

Consider these factors when developing processes that use this service:

  • You must configure the properties that are used to connect to the LDAP server before using the LDAP service operations.

  • LDAP directories use a tree structure as the data model. Different types of databases, such as Sun ONE or Microsoft Active Directory, use different tree structures. LDAP administrators typically customize the directory structure based on the requirements of their organization. Consult with your LDAP administrator for information about the directory that you are querying.
