With the URL adapter it is also possible to access LDAP servers.

The special URL format to access LDAP is specified in RFC 2255. It has the form ldap://server:port/[DN]?[attributes]?[scope]?[filter]?[extension], where DN is the starting point in the directory tree, attributes are the fields to be returned, scope is the search logic (e.g. sub for sub-tree search), filter is the search query, and extension for further functionality like binding (=login). For examples see the RFC linked above.

The URL adapter only supports read access to LDAP repositories.

The LDAP server x500.bund.de used in the UML example is a public LDAP server that does not require any authentication.

The LDAP browser by SoftTerra is a useful, free tool to browse LDAP servers.
