Is there a way to get specific properties from an AD object. This is possible in the LDAP component, but I do not want to use that component because it is not up to date.


Hi Furkan,

This component does not allow get specific properties from an AD object without adding them to the extension first. If you tell me which properties are missing I can add them to the component.


Hi Renato,

I would like to get a specific set of properties from the User object, because the "AD_GetUserDetails" causes delays in our application. 

Is it possible to create an action which has an input parameter where I can set the properties which I want as a result?

Thanks Renato

Probably. I'll have to investigate.

Hi Renato,

Have you been able to investigate this?

Kind Regards,


I'm sorry Furkan, I haven't had the chance yet.

Still, I don't know what performance boost you'll get, I suspect none. The get details action queries the AD directly and this might be the cause for your delays in the application. Have you checked the network connection between the platform and your AD server?
