Ok guys (and gals), here's my situation.
A 3rd party installed and setup our Maximo IT management system and did a pretty shoddy job and I've been tasked with redesigning the system. One of the requirements is that the person records in Maximo are synchronised with our Active Directory. The way this is done currently is by using the VMMSYNC crontask. Obviously this works but has the drawback that every AD account is setup as both a person record and a user. This is not want I want (for obvious reasons) going forward and am trying to think of alternatives on how I can import AD records into Maximo.
I know i can extract the data into a flatfile/xml/table and then import with the MIF but I was hoping to try an implement a more "polished" solution. Lately I've been playing around with Integration Composer (using it for deployed assets) and was wondering if there was an API (i think that's the right term) that allows it to connect to AD?
If anybody has come across this or has any suggestions it would help.
