The cfldap tag extends the ColdFusion query capabilities to LDAP network directory services. The cfldap tag lets you use LDAP in many ways, such as the following:

  • Create Internet White Pages so users can locate people and resources and get information about them.
  • Provide a front end to manage and update directory entries.
  • Build applications that incorporate data from directory queries in their processes.
  • Integrate applications with existing organizational or corporate directory services.
    The cfldap tag action attribute supports the following operations on LDAP directories:

Action

add

delete

modify
