✙ (Request) - More information about LDAP 3.0

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I wold like to request for there to be more information on the Wiki regarding LDAP 3.0

As of current the Wiki isn't fully up to date with regards to the new feature so am struggling to find answers. In the meantime can someone answer the following for me:

1. In the LDAP Server tab - what does the "Types only" box do?

2. In the User Account tab, what do we put in for the Time Zone and Date Formats and the other similar fields?

3. In the User Options tab what is the "Member Of" field in the Organisations region and how does this differ from the "Value" field?

Many thanks,

Samuel

1. Types only (Return Attribute Descriptions) as part of the LDAP Query, its part of the LDAP Query interface but doesn't have any relivence to the imports at least none that i am aware of at this time. Its only exposed just encase its needed for some reason.

2. Examples can be found on the following system system settings 
system.regionalSettings.dateFormat
system.regionalSettings.timezone

3. Member Of allows you to only assign Organisations to users that are a member of certain AD Groups as detailed here:

Hi @TrevorKillick the info you provided has been helpful thanks.

Just a quick one, I am trying to import from an OU, single level. Doing a count in this OU using PowerShell returns 45 accounts. Exporting from AD into Excel is also showing 45 accounts... but the log file for the LDAP_Import says this:

Shouldn't this be saying "45" accounts?:

I have doubled checked the OU path in PowerShell, Hornbill and the location I am looking at in AD and it is the same.

Maybe I am misunderstanding the message about how many Accounts of Processed?

Thanks,

Samuel

What Scope have you got set?

Accounts Processed is the total number of results from LDAP, you can change the log level to debug and you get some more information in the logs
 

2018/04/13 15:14:19 [DEBUG] Processing Old Log Files Current Retention Set to: 1
2018/04/13 15:14:19 [DEBUG] Query LDAP For Users

Hi @TrevorKillick,

It's currently set to "Single Level". Here are some screenshots to show what I mean:

PowerShell:

Active Directory Export:

Hornbill Log:

Hornbill Data Import Configuration:

I can also confirm that the batch file is using the correct config name:

Just looking at the numbers it looks like the "Images Updated" is the area to focus on.
