After configuring the is_config.xml to third party LDAP (eg. eDirectory), in the identity service test page (http://<host>:<port>/integration/services/IdentityService/identity ), the lookupuser() method could not find the user.

The following is an example of settings in is_config.xml.

<property name="nameattribute" value="cn"/>
<property name="objectclass" value="inetOrgPerson"/>
<search searchbase="ou=au,o=Oracle"
scope="subtree" maxSizeLimit="1000" maxTimeLimit="30"/>

In the domain.log, after setting the default.collaxa.cube.services to DEBUG,  you will witness that the search filter is always using “uid”, Even though the value of “nameattibute” is set to “cn” or other value like 'xy' or 'abc', in is_config.xml file.

Domain.log file:
<2009-11-24 12:08:20,978> <DEBUG> <default.collaxa.cube.services> <LDAPProvider::searchUsers> Search filter=(&(objectclass=inetOrgPerson)(uid=<variable>))

Note: Some third party Ldap servers might not have the field uid.
