Deleting the LDAP entity type | HCL Digital Experience

If you changed your LDAP user registry and no longer require an entity type, you can delete it.

Before you begin

In a stand-alone server environment, you can complete the following task when the servers are either stopped or started. In a clustered environment, start the deployment manager and node agent. Then, verify that they are able to synchronize.


  1. Go to the wp_profile_root/ConfigEngine/properties directory.
  2. Open the file with a text editor.
  3. Enter the following parameters under the VMM LDAP entity type configuration heading:
    Note: Go to the properties file for specific information about the parameters.
    • et.entityTypeName
    • et.objectClass
    • et.searchFilter
    • et.objectClassesForCreate
    • et.searchBases
  4. Save your changes to the file.
  5. Open a command prompt.
  6. Change to the wp_profile_root/ConfigEngine directory.
  7. Optional: Run the following task to delete an LDAP entity type:
    • AIX® HP-UX Linux Solaris: ./ wp-delete-ldap-entitytype -DWasPassword=password
    • IBM® i: wp-delete-ldap-entitytype -DWasPassword=password
    • Windows: ConfigEngine.bat wp-delete-ldap-entitytype -DWasPassword=password
    • z/OS®: ./ wp-delete-ldap-entitytype -DWasPassword=password
  8. Stop and restart the appropriate servers to propagate the changes. For instructions, go to Starting and stopping servers, deployment managers, and node agents.
