Custom ldap attribute

Submitted by mcshell on Thu, 01/16/2014 - 06:38

I was wondering if any one had worked on this and either had success or it just did not work.

Background:We are looking to go live with Luminis 5.1 in July and will be using Google Mail for students. One item we want them to be able to do is access google mail from their phones and tablets without having to log into portal. To do this I think we need to provide google the hash value we store in ldap so they can login.

Issue:The issue I have hit is we looked to use the Google sync tool but one item I have hit is the student role is no longer held in ldap so telling Google Sync what attribute to look for is holding me up.

Question: Has anyone created a custom attribute in ldap and then updated that using banner integration. We currently have events working between Luminis 5 and Banner 8. I see the student role in the xml that comes across and see that Luminis 5 stores the value in the database.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike
