Import phone number from LDAP

We store phone numbers in our LDAP directory. I want to update all of our person records with the phone number from LDAP. What do I need to do to get an import mapping correctly configured to accomplish this?

Thanks,

Jeff

Re: Import phone number from LDAP

The context of import mapping with respect to OVSD implies you already have an xml file.

If this assumption is correct then the information you will need to complete an import mapping is two fields:

1. a unique identifier
2. phone number (use this field as the primary key)

A third field is also required for input which is the telephone type, however this can be provided for in the template you choose.

If you have more than one telephone number and type then you may either choose separate templates or enter the map the type.
