TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks™ Plug-in for LDAP is a bridge between TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks™ and an LDAP server.
TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks is a leading integration platform that can integrate a wide variety of technologies and systems within enterprise and on cloud. TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks includes an Eclipse-based graphical user interface (GUI) provided by TIBCO Business Studio™ for design, testing, and pushing to cloud. If you are not familiar with TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks before using the plug-in. See the TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks documentation for more details.
TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Plug-in for LDAP plugs into TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks and adds the LDAP palette and the LDAP Cloud palette to TIBCO Business Studio. You can create a connection between the plug-in and an LDAP server, and then configure a process that uses the activities in the LDAP palette to manage LDAP entries, monitor an LDAP server, or validate LDAP users. You can also create an LDAP Cloud connection between the plugin and Cloud Directory Service, and then configure a process to perform the create or delete operations on resources of the Cloud Directory Service. See Getting Started for more details about how to use the plug-in.
- Authentication Modes
The plug-in acts as a client. You can connect to an LDAP server by using the simple authentication mode, the external authentication mode, or without authentication.
- SSL Authentication
The plug-in supports using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to secure the data exchange between the plug-in and LDAP servers.
- Persistent Monitoring
- Importing and Exporting Entries
The plug-in supports importing entries from an LDAP Data Interchange Format (LDIF) file to an LDAP server, or exporting the searched and monitored entries to an LDIF file.
- Alias Dereferencing
The plug-in supports alias dereferencing for the Search Entry activity. In an LDAP directory, an alias entry is an entry that points to another entry. Following an alias pointer is known as dereferencing an alias. When you look up an object by using the alias, the alias is dereferenced so what is returned is the object pointed by the alias DN (distinguished name).
- Data Information Tree Browsing
Data on an LDAP server is stored as entries, each of which stores the information of an object or an entity. All entries are organized into a tree structure, which is called Data Information Tree. The plug-in supports selecting an entry from a Data Information Tree (DIT). You can specify the number of entries loaded in DIT.
