Dundas BI でLDAP Objects に連携するダッシュボードを構築

ダイナミックダッシュボードを作成し、Dandus BI からLDAP objects データを分析

CData ODBC Driver for LDAP を使って、ODBC 経由でリアルタイムLDAP Objects にアクセスして、さまざまなBI ツール、レポート作成ツール、およびETL ツールからシームレスに連携。 ここでは、一般的なODBC データプロバイダーとしてLDAP objects に接続し、Dundas BI でLDAP objects データのチャート、レポート、およびダッシュボードを作成する方法について説明します。

LDAP Objects への接続

  1. If you have not already done so, provide values for the required connection properties in the data source name (DSN).You can configure the DSN using the built-in Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator.This is also the last step of the driver installation.See the "Getting Started" chapter in the Help documentation for a guide to using the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure a DSN.

    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.

    When you configure the DSN, you may also want to set the Max Rows connection property.This will limit the number of rows returned, which is especially helpful for improving performance when designing reports and visualizations.

  2. Open the Dundas BI interface, open the menu, and click New Data Connector.
  3. Configure the Dundas BI Data Connector:
    • Name the Data Connector.
    • Select "ODBC generic" as the Data Provider.
    • Check the "Use System DSN" checkbox.
    • Select the appropriate System DSN.

ダッシュボードにLDAP Objects を追加

You are now ready to create a dashboard with LDAP objects.

  1. Navigate to the Home page.
  2. Click Explore Data.
  3. Expand the appropriate Data Connector.
  4. Drag the relevant data from the Connector to the panel.
    • You can select an entire "table" to add, but you may need to remove Measures/Rows from the Metric Set to build an appropriate visualization.Alternatively, you can select only the fields you wish to include in the visualization.
    • With the fields selected, you can add any filters or conditions on the Measures and Rows, further customizing the visualization.
  5. Click Re-visualize from the menu bar and select the appropriate visualization for the data.
  6. Click Add To New Dashboard to add the visualization to a new dashboard.
  7. Configure the dashboard, creating dynamic visualizations of LDAP objects.
