Hello !

I have a Weblogic Domain with a security realm containing an LDAPAuthenticator ...

My problem : i can authenticate in the application with a user in the Ldap, but i need to get some fields stored in the Ldap such as :
- email
- phone number
- ...

I don't know how to do that. Is there a way to get an object representing the ldap user, and by this way get the ldap attributes ?

Thanks for your responses.

The problem is that i don't want to reconnect via another ldap library ...

I MUST use weblogic authentication because the ldap schema can be altered in the future and we need to be able to configure the ldap requesting via the Weblogic console and NOT to redeploy the application.

So the solution i need could be :
- getting an object from the weblogic authentication subsystem
- on this object getting the ldap attributes.

Can i do this with the library you mentionned ?

if Yes, could you provide a sample ?

Thanks

you won' be able to retrieve ldap objects read by the ldap authenticator. This component will run as a black box inside the security framework.
I think there is a confusion between authenticating users and retrieving profile information such as email, firstname... It's not the responibility of the weblogic server security framework to load profile information. You have to write and deploy your own component to achieve this.
