DBArtisan でLDAP Objects に連携

DBArtisan のウィザードを使って、LDAP objects をデータソースとして連携利用。

CData ODBC Driver for LDAP は、DBArtisan などのデータベースツールとLDAP objects を連携し、RDB のような感覚でLDAP データを扱えます。 本記事では、DBArtisan 上でLDAP データソースを作成する方法とクエリの実行方法を説明します。

DBArtisan Project にLDAP Objects を連携する

If you have not already, first specify connection properties in an ODBC DSN (data source name). This is the last step of the driver installation. You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure ODBC DSNs.

To establish a connection, the following properties under the Authentication section must be provided:

  • Valid User and Password credentials (e.g., Domain\BobF or cn=Bob F,ou=Employees,dc=Domain).
  • Server information, including the IP or host name of the Server, as well as the Port.
  • BaseDN: This will limit the scope of LDAP searches to the height of the distinguished name provided.

    Note: Specifying a narrow BaseDN may greatly increase performance; for example, cn=users,dc=domain will only return results contained within cn=users and its children.

You can then follow the steps below to register LDAP objects as a database instance in your project:

  1. In DBArtisan, click Data Source -> Register Datasource.
  2. Select Generic ODBC.
  3. Enter a name for the data source and select the DSN.
  4. Finish the wizard to connect to LDAP objects. LDAP entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

You can now work with LDAP objects as you work with any other database. See the driver help documentation for more information on the queries supported by the LDAP API.
