CROWD - How to extend the LDAP connector to get more user attributes ?

Valerie AQUILA May 13, 2013

Hello,

I'm evaluating Crowd and I'm particularly interested to extend the LDAP connector to get more users attributes (and maybe also more groups attributes).

At this time, I've not yet a Crowd licence.

The doc says:

"If you need support for additional LDAP attributes, the Crowd LDAP connector can be extended. With a license purchase, full source is available and the LDAP connectors can be modified to support any number of attributes."

But how could I evaluate this feature without having the full source? this is one major point that makes us decide to buy a licence.

Also, is there somewhere a doc that explains how to extend the LDAP connector ?

Thanks in advance !

Hi Valerie,

Here you can find all Crowd classes and which methods you can use. As for the source, I'd suggest that you get in touch with our sales department (sales@atlassian.com) if you have any question about the license.

I hope this helps.

Cheers

Hi Tiago,

Ok, thank you for the answer.

I'll wait my management decision and contact your sales department.

Hi Jobin,

First, thanks for your quick answer.

I've a look on https://developer.atlassian.com/display/CROWDDEV/Creating+a+Custom+Directory+Connector

I understand I've to write my own code. Nevertheless, in the MyCustomDirectoryServer template shown in the doc, the comment says

// The source code to the InternalDirectory, which comes with your commercial license is a good implementation example.

But as long as I'm evaluating Crowd, I don't have a commercial licence, so I don't have the source code, and I can't find what to write here in this class ??

Could you point me to an example ?

I am afraid I don't have an example with me. Yes, getting source code would be the best thing to do but that requires license (even a $10 license will do). Check with Atlassian as Tiago suggested about questions on licensing.
