In some cases, you must use a connector to retrieve group information from a repository. This might be necessary when a repository has its own system for storing users and groups, and for describing which users are members of which groups.
In the OmniGroupServer configuration file, you can set up a repository and use the parameter
GroupServerJobType=Connector to specify that a connector must retrieve the information. When
GroupServerJobType=Connector, OmniGroupServer sends the
SynchronizeGroups action to the connector. The connector then retrieves the group information and returns it to OmniGroupServer.
To retrieve security groups through a connector
[Repositories] section, create a repository. For example:
[Repositories] Number=1 0=GroupsFromConnector
Create a section to contain the task details and set the following configuration parameters.
||The type of task that OmniGroupServer must run. To retrieve groups through a connector, set this parameter to
||The host name or IP address of the machine that hosts the connector.|
||The ACI port of the connector.|
||The name of a task section in the connector’s configuration file that contains the information and credentials required to connect to the repository.|
[GroupsFromConnector] GroupServerJobType=Connector ConnectorHost=localhost ConnectorPort=1234 ConnectorTask=MyTask
For a complete list of configuration parameters that you can use, refer to the OmniGroupServer Reference.
