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.
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?
I am facing exactly this , the configuration page shows 2 users for a filter but the LDAP Synch With Usernames smart service in the process returns only 1 user. Were you able to solve this ?
Hi All, Can someone help me. I think I am doing something wrong in BASE DN and FILTERs. Connection is successful but user sync is not happening. Getting empty result from LDAP server.
Hi Robert, We are on 18.1 and trying to connect LDAP server for user creation,amandment with LDAP 1.4 version application. We are able to establish connection successfully and users are not synchronizing which are in LDAP group.
Can you provide more information? What other filters have you applied on the configuration screen? Did the users exist in the environment before running this instance of LDAP sync?
