Sentinel 7 using ldap query to eDirectory


Hi,

Is it possible for me to generate a custom report that will perform a
ldapsearch on my eDirectory to retrieve attributes of users? Or is there
a way where i can create a collector to connect to my eDirectory
database?. What I'm planning to do is i would like to customized a
report to display all users attribute in a report using iReport and
upload it into Sentinel 7 system, please advise thanks.

Re: Sentinel 7 using ldap query to eDirectory

Regarding your original question, I doubt this is possible in the way you
describe it.

With that in mind, is there some reason you do not use the Identity
Integration possible in Sentinel 7 to send data from eDirectory to
Sentinel using an Identity Manager (IDM) driver? If you do not have an
entitlement for this (or IDM at all) you could potentially export the data
from eDirectory and then use the REST API to import identity data for
users into Sentinel and you could report on it from there using built-in,
or custom, reports.

Re: Sentinel 7 using ldap query to eDirectory


Hi ab,

Firstly thanks for your reply, actually i do have an IDM server running
currently but how do I export user data to Sentinel using Identity
Integration? Correct me if I'm wrong when you say Identity Integration
do you mean the driver used for Identity Tracking? If that's the driver
that you're mentioning how do I actually pull out all this user data to
compile as a report and what tool or language (MySQL, Lucene and etc)
should I use? and once I compile this report can I upload it to my
Sentinel server? because from my understanding Identity Tracking is used
for tracking user activities another word the audit trail but what I
really want is the user data for example in IDM I got user with
"A"attributes I would like to compile a report to list user with "A"
attributes.

Many thanks for your help really appreciate it.

The Sentinel 7 driver for IDM is for "Identity Tracking", yes, which is
the feature that feeds data from user objects in the Identity Vault into
Sentinel, which then means that the data are held in Sentinel for direct
reporting.

I'd check the default, built-in reports first to see if there are any that
report on identities in the system. If so, what you're after may be
really easy. If not, you could build a report with iReport that queries
the built-in PostgreSQL database (like other stock reports already can do
out of the box, so maybe use them as templates if that helps, vs. the
Lucene ones that will not be as helpful as templates) for the identities.
I forget the table names now, but I believe they have identity in the
name... something like usr_identity or similar.
