OpenLDAP 2.1.x Back SQL RecipeUp one level
This is an recipe for using OpenLDAP 2.1.x's (and possibly 2.0.x's) back-sql module to present the contents of an OpenGroupware installation as an LDAP hierarchy. This allows contact information, etc... to be used in the myriad of applications that support LDAP (Eudora, Mozilla, etc...) but that have no native OpenGroupware integration.
- OGo Back SQL Creation Script
- This script creates the views of the OpenGroupware data as well as the back-sql meta data required to map the data into the LDAP Dit.
- OGo Back SQL Drop Script
- This script cleanly removes the back-sql meta-data tables and the created views from your OpenGroupware database.
- OGo Back SQL Schema
- The back-sql mapping requires the creation of a couple of unique schema elements. So include this file into your OpenLDAP schema via slapd.conf. This OID space is allocated to Morrison Industries so please don't "extend" it. If you want to define some more schema just e-mail me and we can allocate it, but we need to keep track of what OIDs are used and for what.
