How far off is IdB 5 from having a schema unique to each adapter?

Matthew Woolnough 3 years ago in UNIFYBroker/Microsoft Identity Manager • updated by anonymous 3 years ago 3

How far off is IdB 5 from having a schema unique to each adapter? Both adapters will have feilds like Person_Number and Given_Names and I want to avoid having to have:


AdapterA_Person_Number

AdapterB_Person_Number

and


AdapterA_Given_Names

AdapterB_Given_Names

If I dont need to. I believe this is the case as it stands with the current version of IdB.

Hi Matthew,


Thanks for the question. The reason behind the single schema was a limitation in Microsoft's generic LDAP MA. Now that we have our own MA there is some flexibility in what parts of the LDAPv3 specification that we support. We have code in the v5.1 branch that we are currently testing which allows for multiple schemas for a single directory (1 per adapter), and it is our intention to have this available in the upcoming v5.1 release.


Thanks.
