How to Create Virtual Data Transformations "Constructing an Attribute With a Read Transformation" (Doc ID 1327738.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 23, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition - Version 6.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

An Organization does not store email addresses of its users within the email attribute of its LDAP Directory Server, so this attribute doesn't exist neither on the Directory Server, nor on the Directory Proxy Server:

$ ldapsearch -h <DS_HOST> -p <DS_PORT> -b "dc=example,dc=com" uid=jvedder email
version: 1
dn: uid=jvedder, ou=People, dc=example,dc=com
$ ldapsearch -h <DPS_HOST> -p <DPS_PORT> -b "dc=example,dc=com" uid=jvedder email
version: 1
dn: uid=jvedder, ou=People, dc=example,dc=com


However, a new client application requires that a user's email address be returned within the email attribute in the user entry.

How to define a virtual view in which the email attribute is added to each user entry for reads only?
