Question

I'm trying to integrate our LDAP server with the PersonalInfoAddOn, and for the most part everything works. I've made modification to PersonalInfoAddOn similar to what is described in PersonalInfoWithLdap. However, I'm not sure how to get the directsearch.js script to function properly. As far as I can tell when the script is built it looks at the UserForm attached to each user's page. When I enter the relevant fields in the UserForm manually, the directsearch works as advertised. But I'd like to have the form generated from the LDAP directory such that the UserForm data and the LDAP don't become out of sync.

Is there a way to have the UserForm data pulled from the LDAP?

I cannot help you as I don't have any experience with LDAP.

I managed to solve / work around the problem. I was approaching it wrong.

Any data that should be looked up by LDAP I removed from the UserForm. (The only thing I'm leaving to the users is the picture) To make everything else work, I modified the necessary sections in PersonalInfo and PersonalInfoModules to grab data by LDAP (as opposed to formatted search).
