RTC: LDAP and mail mapping


Stefano Antoniazzi (1701711) | asked Mar 01 '11, 12:28 a.m.
I've configured Rational Team Concert 2.0.0.2 iFix6 for using LDAP. Our LDAP Server is Active Directory.
The field "mail" is not set for every user on Active Directory so during jazz setup I couldn't pass the check (by the way how this check is performed?).
For passing the check I mapped a different field (mailAddress=name).
I manually imported some users and everything works with LDAP.

After that I read in the forums that I may set the mail mapping even if the check is not passed (the message is a warning so I may step over).

So I run the jazz setup again and changed the mapping to mail.
I run the jazz admin but I don't see the user mail attribute updated.

What should I do for updating the mail field? Should I also stop and start the server for making the changes active? I was thinking that those values are dynamically changing based on the setup (for example if I change the LDAP group I see the change immediately from the jazz user admin).

Hi Stefano,

the server syncs the data in over night. You can enforce that with repotools -syncUsers (please run repotools and check the commands available).

The server didn't sync in over night but the -syncUsers did the job. Thanks!!!!!
I was thinking that the mail was a "dynamic" attribute but it appears to be static.

Do you also know what check is performed during LDAP setup validation? What user is checked for mail property? All the users?
