Re: How do you have LDAP Setup for Apps

You can also create your own custom auxiliary  objectClass that you can use as an addition filter.

for example:

objectClass     ( your_custom_OID_here 
    NAME ‘yourcustomPerson'
    DESC ‘My Custom User INFO'
    MUST ( customUserPriv $ customAuthApp1 $ customStaffMember $ customRemoteAccess $ customEnabled )
    MAY ( ) )

then you would need to define your custom attributeTypes and load the whole thing into LDAP.

The custom attribute types can then be used as an addition filter.
