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

Last updated on FEBRUARY 28, 2020

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 either doesn't exist on the Directory Server or on the Directory Proxy Server:

$ ldapsearch -h <DS_HOST> -p <DS_PORT> -b "<SUFFIX_DN>" uid=<UID1> email
version: 1
dn: uid=<UID1>, ou=People, <SUFFIX_DN>
$ ldapsearch -h <DPS_HOST> -p <DPS_PORT> -b "<SUFFIX_DN>" uid=<UID1> email
version: 1
dn: uid=<UID1>, ou=People, <SUFFIX_DN>


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

This document shows how to define a virtual view in which the email attribute is added to each user entry for read-only.
