Returns an array of the requested attribute. This is an LDAP search routine. It gets the LDAP record and shows the attribute of that user. Returned user must be unique otherwise exception occurs. You can retrieve any attribute defined in the scheme.


Return Type

String []

The values of the specified attribute. If the attribute only has one value, the array will contain only one element, but will still be an array and not a single string.


Open DS Example

string email = ldapUserAttr("mail", "(&(uid=user.1)(objectClass=inetOrgPerson))");
string address = ldapUserAttr("postalAddress", "(&(uid=user.1)(objectClass=inetOrgPerson))");

LDAP must be configured. See LDAP configuration page.
Only Microsoft Active Directory is supported at this time, but it might work with other as well (tested with OpenDS). To provide support for other LDAP types contact us.
