How to classify users by department from ume directory


I have a current need to create a taxonomy based on the ume:department property of the /ume repository, to have a list of users by department (ume is connected to our LDAP)

In order to achieve this, I have to created a taxonomy, but to have this Query-based taxonomy work, I have to enable the properties-service, which cannot be done on the ume-repository - or can it ?

I would like to avoid coping, via ICE, the /ume repository to an otherone that index for classification.

Is there a way to overcome this problem with duplicates of the UME-content and still being able to use a taxonomy?

Any help will be rewarded.

    As far as I know, taxonomies can only be created on top of KM repositories and UME is not a KM repository.

    You might be able to get it working by creating a repository connector in KM which reads data from UME, but this will be alot of work.

    You should probably develop a portal component which does this work instead of a taxonomy.

      I did implement a working solution that I do not like very much, but who's code free 😉)

      I created personal DB repository with the Properties service, and implement automatic ICE to populate that directory from /ume.

      The purpose of my question was to avoid this additional step
