Column> element specifies a mapping from a column in a database table or an attribute in an LDAP result set to an IdPAttribute name. In most cases this is equivalent to aliasing a result column in a SQL statement, but may be clearer to look at, and in the case of LDAP it provides missing aliasing capability.
Schema Name and Location
This element is defined by the
urn:mace:shibboleth:2.0:resolver schema, which is located at http://shibboleth.net/schema/idp/shibboleth-attribute-resolver.xsd.
<Column columnName="homephone" attributeID="phonenumber" />
<Column columnName="prenom" attributeID="firstname" />
<Column> element must have two attributes:
|string, required||Name of the column in the result set coming from the database or attribute coming from LDAP|
Name of the (internal) identifier to give the IdPAttribute representing the column or attribute
No child elements are defined.
The result set processing expressed by the
<Column> elements can instead be defined by specifying the
mappingStrategyRef attribute on the data connector. This allows for much more advanced result set processing, including the generation of non-string valued results.
