LDAP Tools

This Plug-in provides the ability to update Appian user profiles from data retrieved from an LDAP server. The data that can be synchronized include all the default user profile fields except the username (e.g. first name, last name, address, phone, supervisor, title, etc…) as well as the custom fields.

Features:

  • LDAP User Profile Synchronization (Smart Service) - available in the Process Modeler under Integration Services > Connectivity Services
  • LDAP Sync Process Model (Sample Process Model) - will need to be tailored and tested based on identity management requirements
  • ldapSearch() Function - returns an array of LDAP attributes for a specific search query


See the instructions documentation (attached PDF) and https://community.appian.com/w/the-appian-playbook/520/ldap-synchronization for more information.

  • We managed to get the plugin working. However, we are observing an issue. In the configuration screen, the filter testing results returns 3 users, however, in the "LDAP User Synch With Usernames" node, the "usernamesUpdated_texts" var will only return 2 users, therefore, 1 of the user will be removed from the current group in appian after the sync.

    We checked the setting on all 3 users in ldap are the same, what else are we missing here? Or can anyone tell us how can the same filter returns correct number of users in a group in ldap in configuration screen, and not in the smart node in process model?
