Import additional information from AD without credentials


I want to import additional data like email from AD without using the credentials. I tried creating custom adapter but it asks for AD details when I select directory service.

Can anyone please guide me if the above requirement is possible. And if yes, how?

Any leads are appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Hi Nidhi,

If your AD keeps asking for credentials, I guess it has been set up this way for a reason. You'll need to get credentials, or maybe have your default user (the import is run by) get additional rights.

Within the Business Adapter, when you create a connection to AD Directory Services, you can specify the Logon and Password credentials to connect to LDAP.  See the attached.
