Directory Services

Reading a Directory Object

The following code example retrieves the Jeff Smith user object from the LDAP directory.

<se:Envelope xmlns:se="">
   <se:Body xmlns="urn:oasis:names:tc:DSML:2:0:core">
		 <searchRequest dn="cn=Jeff Smith,ou=Sales,dc=fabrikam,dc=com" scope="baseObject" derefAliases="neverDerefAliases">
			 <present name="objectclass"/>

The <se:Envelope> and <se:Body> SOAP elements enclose the DSML payload. The first element of the DSML payload, <batchRequest>, is the mandatory top-level element for all DSML V2 requests. The <searchRequest> element requests the Jeff Smith user object from the directory.
