The LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) connector for Jitterbit Harmony Cloud Studio provides an interface for entering user-provided input such as credentials to create an authenticated LDAP connection. That connection provides the foundation to configure associated LDAP connector activities that interact with the connection. Together, a specific LDAP connection and its activities are referred to as an LDAP endpoint.
Supported API Versions and Prerequisites¶
The LDAP connector uses the Apache Directory LDAP API version 1.0.1. This API supports all types of LDAP servers, not just ApacheDS. Refer to the Apache LDAP API 1.0.1 Documentation and documentation on the specific LDAP server for information on the schema fields.
The LDAP connector requires the use of an agent version 10.1 or later. These agent versions automatically download the latest version of the connector when required.
This connector is used to first configure an LDAP connection, establishing access to an LDAP directory server, and then used to configure one or more LDAP activities associated with that connection as a source or target within an operation:
Search Entry: Returns entries in an LDAP endpoint and is intended to be used as a source in an operation.
Add Entry: Adds entries to an LDAP endpoint and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.
Delete Entry: Deletes entries from an LDAP endpoint and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.
Modify Entry: Modifies entries in an LDAP endpoint and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.
Accessing the Connector¶
The LDAP connector is accessed from the Connectivity tab of the design component palette by using the Show dropdown to filter on Connectors.
Once a connection is configured, activities associated with the endpoint are available by using the Show dropdown to filter on Endpoints and then clicking the LDAP connection block:
