TDV Adapter for LDAP

Build 21.0.8137


The top level class from which all classes are derived.

Table Specific Information


All columns support server-side processing for the following operators =, >= , <=, !=, LIKE, AND, and OR. Other filters are executed client side within the adapter. For example, the following query is processed by Generic LDAP:

SELECT * FROM Top WHERE  CN != 'NewUser' AND  BaseDN = 'CN=Users,DC=MyDC' LIMIT 5 


To add a Top record, all fields can be specified except Id, DN, and BaseDN. Required fields that should be provided are RDN and ObjectClass. For example:

INSERT INTO Top (RDN, ObjectClass) VALUES ('CN=NewUser', 'top;person;organizationalPerson;user;inetOrgPerson')


All columns except Id, DN, and BaseDN can be updated by providing the Id in the WHERE clause. For example:

UPDATE Top SET Description = 'test' WHERE Id = '1|CN=NewUser,CN=Users,DC=MyDC'


Top records can be deleted by providing the Id of the Top record in a DELETE statement. For example:

DELETE FROM Top WHERE Id = '1|CN=NewUser,CN=Users,DC=MyDC'
