We have access to an LDAP server that has a field we need the information from. Its structure cannot be changed. We have a client application that requires the field to a certain name. How can we change the field name to match what we need before it gets to the application?
One alternative to deploy a device that can do transformations on attribute names, for example, a Directory Proxy Server or Synchronization Server. Alternatively, if your directory server supports plugins, one could write such a plugin to do the job.
