I'm using the Service Catalog r12.8; I have a EEM 184.108.40.206 connection to an LDAP functioning normally;
Not sure if I was able to get the question right. You mean to say that you created a form as part of form designer and as part of that form you have a text field where the user enters userid. And as part of this form you want to perform some validation to check if the entered user exist in LDAP ?? Is this understanding right?
Since your EEM is tied to LDAP , all users present as part of LDAP would be available as contact in Service Catalog. You can use Report Data Object to query the ca_contact table to fetch contact details. This report object can be used as part of your form to provide the user with an option to select a valid contact that is already present.
In the form you will have to use the lookup or drop down option where you can associate the report data object.
By using this you can skip the validation step. Hope this helps
In my case it is not right to say that all LDAP contacts are in the Service Catalog ca_contact table because our import is only for users who used the Catalog as applicants and approvers. other users are not applicants but may appear as participants in the request or even as users who should be notified only. Therefore, these users do not exist in ca_contact. I really need to consult the LDAP directly. The alternative I had thought er one EEM SOAP method where users query (which covers the entire tree of LDAP) could be executed through the Catalog
Were you able to meet this requirement? How?
