How to use the UME api in order to search the LDAP?


I have an application which connects to the LDAP the portal is connecting to and search users according to a certain search criteria.

Here is the relevant piece of code:

Hashtable env = new Hashtable();
DirContext ctx = new InitialDirContext(env);
SearchControls controls = new SearchControls();
String filter = "firstName=..."
NamingEnumeration results ="OU=OUs", filter, controls);

I would like to do this same search using the UME API.

Can someone please show me the equivalent code to it using the UME API?

    Hi Roy,

    I used the following code:

    IUserFactory ufact = UMFactory.getUserFactory();

    IUserSearchFilter usf = ufact.getUserSearchFilter();

    usf.setSearchAttribute( "",


    theNameToBeSearched, ISearchAttribute.LIKE_OPERATOR, false);

    ISearchResult sr = ufact.searchUsers(usf);

    In some cases you will have to modify the datasource_configuration.xml to able to search for your company specific attributes of the LDAP.
