Populating Profiles with photos from LDAP

You can use the IBM® Tivoli® Directory Integrator assembly-line command load_photos_from_ldap to load the Profiles database with photos of your users.

Before you begin

Make sure that the Profiles database is already populated with users. The assembly line relies on the distinguished name to locate photos in LDAP.


To load photos from LDAP:
  1. Open the profiles_tdi.properties file and add a value for load_photos_from_ldap_attr_name, which is the name of the binary attribute in your LDAP that contains the photo.

    Typical values for load_photos_from_ldap_attr_name are photo, jpegPhoto, and image.

  2. Run the load_photos_from_ldap assembly line command.
    Note: You must run this command for each LDAP server and each LDAP branch that contains photos.
