Hi,

 

Is there any way for filemaker to pull information from an LDAP server. My client stores their contact details in an LDAP directory and it would be useful to pull info out of it into FM?

 

Thanks

 

Carl

Not directly wiith Filemaker. You could probably use FM to launch a VB script that would fetch the data from LDAP and then import the results into FM. I assume the same could be done with Mac scripting on the Mac platform and it would probably be easier than Windows.

 

There *may* also be some plugins for FM that handle this kind of thing directly. There is also a new plugin that is still in beta testing called SmartPill PHP Edition that can do this and lots of other things. The example file has an LDAP example. I have used it and it works like a champ. I think SmartPill is due to be released for production use any day now.
