Use qpconfig.xml and notes.ini settings to customize IBM® Lotus® Quickr™ control of directory services.
Customizing the attributes displayed for users and groups: qd85
Users and groups in an LDAP directory are described by a variety of attributes. For example, the value for a user's first name is often stored as the givenname
attribute and the last name as the sn
(surname) attribute. Not all LDAP directories define attributes in the same way.
Customizing search filters: qd85
If IBM Lotus Quickr control directory services, you can use the qpconfig.xml file to customize the attributes it looks for during various types of searches.
Customizing the directory lookup interface: qd85
If IBM Lotus Quickr controls directory services, use the qpconfig.xml file to customize the user interface that users see when looking up users in the directory to add as place members. You can customize the search hint and also customize how the user interface displays the results of user searches.
Sample user directory settings: qd85
If IBM Lotus Quickr controls directory services, the qpconfig.xml must be customized. Sample qpconfig.xml files are provided for Sun Java™ System Directory Server or IBM Tivoli® Directory Server.
Customizing the search base used for group searches: qd85
By default, the search base you specify when you connect to an LDAP directory server is used for both user and group searches. You can use the qpconfig.xml file to specify a search base specifically for group searches.
Using nested groups: qd85
If your directory has nested groups -- groups within groups -- that contain the names of IBM Lotus Quickr users, use a notes.ini file setting to allow searches of the nested groups.
Customizing SSL connections: qd85
If you selected the option Check for SSL connection with LDAP user directory
when you set up the connection to the LDAP directory server, optionally use qpconfig.xml settings to customize the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection.
