Within Analyzer you can create a connection and import the correct data.

But when you want to create an Analysis profile and want to add one of those extended attributes
The attributes are not visible in the selection list. Only the default ldap attributes are shown.


Here is how you can get the custom attributes, in this example, a custom attribute called 'kpr-attr1' has been created

   c. kpr-attr1-idv get's listed in the mapping list. Click on the drop down list on the Application side and select the attribute to be mapped. In this example I've a custom attribute in my eDir server called kpr-attr1.
2. Create the analysis profile.
