When a user is succesfuly authenticated by the LDAP security manager, then retrieves the following basic user information from the LDAP server.
You can retrieve additional LDAP user information using the configuration parameter "com.frevvo.security.ldap.customAttributes" and Business Rules. There are many attributes available in Active Directory. View this website for a partial list. Multi value attributes are also supported. Custom attributes can be retrieved for users in a tenant using the LDAP Security Manager or the LDAP Container Security Manager.
If you want to pull additional information from Active Directory into your form, you must add a context parameter to the <frevvo-home>\tomcat\conf\catalina\localhost\frevvo.xml file. The configuration parameter is "com.frevvo.security.ldap.customAttributes" and the value is a comma separated list of attribute names to be retrieved. Let's use the employee's Middle Initials and Home Phone as an example. The attributes for Middle Initials and Telephone Number are initials and telephoneNumber respectively.
Follow these steps to modify the configuration:
<Parameter name="com.frevvo.security.ldap.customAttributes" value="initials,telephoneNumber," override="false"/>
5. Save the file after all your changes are made. Restart .
Attributes with more than one value are also supported. For example, The carLicense attribute can return multiple licenses. You can write a rule to populate dropdown options with those options. Make sure the carLicense attribute is configured in the frevvo.xml file and of course, there are multiple carLicense attributes,each one containing a different value for the dropdown options,set up for appropriate users on the LDAP server.
<Parameter name="com.frevvo.security.ldap.customAttributes" value="initials,telephoneNumber,carLicense" override="false"/>
A JSON array string listing multiple car licenses is returned and it can be used in a rule. This rule will populate the options of a dropdown control named carLicense.
