LDAP Searches

If the RealPresence Resource Manager system is integrated with an Active Directory, the RealPresence Resource Manager uses the LDAP search function for searches of the directory.

LDAP searches are prefix-searches that include an appended wildcard. In this case, when you enter a search string, the system looks for that search string only at the beginning of the indexed fields.

For example, all of the following searches for a participant will find Barbara Smithe:
  • 
    Barbara
    
  • 
    Smithe
    
  • 
    Bar
    
  • 
    Smi
    
To optimize LDAP searches, the RealPresence Resource Manager system searches only indexed LDAP fields and a limited set of attributes. The attributes include:
  • 
    ObjectCategory
    
  • 
    memberOf
    
  • 
    DisplayName
    
  • 
    GivenName
    
  • 
    Sn
    
  • 
    Cn
    
  • 
    Samaccountname
    
  • 
    groupType
    
  • 
    distinguishedName
    
  • 
    objectGuid
    
These are the requested attributes to be returned by the search:
  • 
    Sn
    
  • 
    Givenname
    
  • 
    Mail
    
  • 
    Ou
    
  • 
    Objectguid
    
  • 
    Telephonenumber
    
  • 
    Cn
    
  • 
    Samaccountname
    
  • 
    Memberof
    
  • 
    Displayname
    
  • 
    Objectclass
    
  • 
    Title
    
  • 
    localityName
    
  •
