LDAP Name sync


Michael Baylis (1832619) | asked Aug 25 '09, 8:17 a.m.
Hi,
As an internal IBM team we are using bluepages LDAP to provide authentication and name sync. At present we are using callupname which can result in, for example:-

Baylis, M. (Michael)

This is not very socialable and results in mangled initials ie BM(.

The solution would be to use "cn", but that can result in M. Baylis. Again, not helpful.

So I would like to extend the ldap sync class and include some intelligence in selecting a combination of "givenname" and "sn". eg if the given name is 2 characters and ends in a dot, then try the next givenname.

However, I can't seem find the source of the ldap sync nightly task, would someone point me to the classname please? I suspect that we will deactivate it and use a "build job" that runs often.

cheers,
