Create an SAP BusinessObjects Universe on the CData JDBC Driver for LDAP

Provide connectivity to LDAP objects through an SAP BusinessObjects universe.

This article shows how to use the CData JDBC Driver for LDAP to connect to LDAP from SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence applications. You will use the Information Design Tool to analyze LDAP objects and create a universe on the CData JDBC Driver for LDAP. You will then connect to the universe from Web Intelligence.

Create the JDBC Connection to LDAP

Follow the steps below to create a connection to the LDAP JDBC data source in the Information Design Tool.

  1. Copy the CData JAR and .lic file into the following subfolder in the installation directory for BusinessObjects: dataAccess\connectionServer\jdbc\drivers\jdbc. The CData JAR is located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  2. Right-click your project and click New -> New Relational Connection.
  3. In the wizard that results, click Generic -> Generic JDBC datasource -> JDBC Drivers.
  4. On the next page of the wizard enter the connection details.
  5. On the next page, set the Authentication Mode option to "Use specified username and password". Enter the username, password, and JDBC URL. The JDBC URL begins with jdbc:ldap: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

    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。

    A typical JDBC URL is below:

    jdbc:ldap:User=Domain\BobF;Password=bob123456;Server=10.0.1.1;Port=389;
  6. Enter the driver class: cdata.jdbc.ldap.LDAPDriver
  7. Finish the wizard with the default values for connection pooling and custom parameters.

Analyze LDAP Objects in the Information Design Tool

You can use the JDBC connection to analyze LDAP objects in the Information Design Tool.

  1. In the Local Projects view, double-click the connection (the .cnx file) to open the LDAP data source.
  2. On the Show Values tab, you can load table data and enter SQL queries. To view table data, expand the node for the table, right-click the table, and click Show Values. Values will be displayed in the Raw Data tab.
  3. On the Analysis tab, you can then analyze data by dragging and dropping columns onto the axes of a chart.

Publish the Local Connection

To publish the universe to the CMS, you additionally need to publish the connection.

  1. In the Local Projects view, right-click the connection and click Publish Connection to a Repository.
  2. Enter the host and port of the repository and connection credentials.
  3. Select the folder where the connection will be published.
  4. In the success dialog that results, click Yes to create a connection shortcut.

Create a Universe on the JDBC Driver for LDAP

You can follow the steps below to create a universe on the JDBC driver. The universe in this example will be published to a repository, so it uses the published connection created in the previous step.

  1. In the Information Design Tool, click File->New Universe.
  2. Select your project.
  3. Select the option to create the universe on a relational data source.
  4. Select the shortcut to the published connection.
  5. Enter a name for the Data Foundation.
  6. Import tables and columns that you want to access as objects.
  7. Enter a name for the Business Layer.

Publish the Universe

You can follow the steps below to publish the universe to the CMS.

  1. In the Local Projects view, right-click the business layer and click Publish -> To a Repository.
  2. In the Publish Universe dialog, enter any integrity checks before importing.
  3. Select or create a folder on the repository where the universe will be published.

Query LDAP Objects in Web Intelligence

You can use the published universe to connect to LDAP in Web Intelligence.

  1. Copy the cdata.jdbc.ldap.lic file to the following subfolder in the BusinessObjects installation directory: \dataAccess\connectionServer\jdbc\drivers\jdbc. The license file is located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  2. Open Web Intelligence from the BusinessObjects launchpad and create a new document.
  3. Select the Universe option for the data source.
  4. Select the LDAP universe. This opens a Query Panel. Drag objects to the Result Objects pane to use them in the query.
