CData Connect



Use CData Connect Cloud to create a virtual SQL Server Database for LDAP objects and integrate live LDAP objects into apps built in Microsoft Power Apps.

Power Apps is a service for building and using custom business apps that connect to your data and work across the web and mobile — without the time and expense of custom software development. When paired with CData Connect Cloud, you get instant, cloud-to-cloud access to LDAP objects from the apps you build using Power Apps. This article shows how to connect Connect Cloud from Power Apps and build an app based on live LDAP objects.

CData Connect Cloud provides a pure SQL, cloud-to-cloud interface for LDAP, allowing you to easily integrate with live LDAP objects in Power Apps — without replicating the data. CData Connect Cloud looks exactly like a SQL Server database to Power Apps and uses optimized data processing out of the box to push all supported SQL operations (filters, JOINs, etc) directly to LDAP, leveraging server-side processing to quickly return LDAP objects.

Create a Virtual SQL Database for LDAP Objects

CData Connect Cloud uses a straightforward, point-and-click interface to connect to data sources and generate APIs.

  1. Login to Connect Cloud and click Databases.
  2. Select "LDAP" from Available Data Sources.
  3. Enter the necessary authentication properties to connect to LDAP.

    リクエストを認証するには、User およびPassword プロパティを有効なLDAP クレデンシャル(例えば、User を"Domain\BobF" または"cn=Bob F,ou=Employees,dc=Domain")に設定します。 本製品は、デフォルトでプレーンテキスト認証を使用します。これは、本製品がサーバーとTLS/SSL のネゴシエーションを試みるためです。 AuthMechanism を使って別の認証方法を指定できます。 TLS/SSL コンフィギュレーションについて詳しくは、ヘルプドキュメントの「高度な設定」を参照してください。

      基本接続には、Server およびPort を設定します。さらに、次のように接続を微調整できます。
    • FollowReferrals:設定すると、本製品は参照サーバーのデータもビューとして表示します。参照サーバー上のデータを変更するには、このサーバーをServer およびPort で指定する必要があります。
    • LDAPVersion:サーバーが実装するプロトコルのバージョンに設定します。デフォルトでは、本製品はversion 2 を使用します。
    • BaseDN は、LDAP 検索の範囲を指定された識別名の高さに限定します。BaseDN の範囲を絞ることはパフォーマンスを劇的に向上させます。例えば、"cn=users,dc=domain" の値は、"cn=users" およびその子に含まれる結果のみを返します。
    • Scope:このプロパティを使用すると、サブツリーから返されるデータをより細かく制御できます。
  4. Click Test Database.
  5. Click Privileges -> Add and add the new user (or an existing user) with the appropriate permissions.

Connecting to CData Connect Cloud

To use Connect Cloud to integrate LDAP objects into your Power Apps, you need a new SQL Server connection:

  1. Log in to Power Apps
  2. Click Data -> Connections -> New connection
  3. Select SQL Server
  4. In the connection wizard:

    • Choose to connect directly
    • Set SQL server name to the address of your Connect Cloud instance (myinstance.cdatacloud.net)
    • Set SQL database name to the name of the virtual LDAP database you created earlier (like ldapdb)
    • Set the Username and Password and click Create

Building a Data-Centric App for LDAP Objects

With the connection to Connect Cloud configured, you are ready to integrate live LDAP objects into the apps you build in Power Apps.

  1. Log in to Power Apps
  2. Click Create, hover over "Start from data" and click Make this app
  3. Select the SQL Server connection you created
  4. Search for or choose a table to work with
  5. Click Connect
  6. Customize the newly created app just like you would any other, including changing the layout and setting the fields exposed in BrowseScreen, DetailScreen, and EditScreen

At this point, you have an app with read and write access to live LDAP objects that you can save and publish for use within your organization.

SQL Access to LDAP Objects from Cloud Applications

Now you have a direct connection to live LDAP objects from Microsoft Power Apps. You can create more connections and apps to drive business — all without replicating LDAP objects.
