RE: LDAP phonebook search for number types
Hi Paul,

thanks for the reply...

Maybe I did not make myself clear.

My request was on distinguishing the number type, like office number, mobile number, assistent number, Lab number, etc.

Number1, Number2, Number3, ... does not help here.

It's also confusing that - depending on the available LDAP entries - the number type (of Number1, Number2, Number3) change. E.g. if I have a LDAP entry at 'telephoneNumber' , Number1 is the always the 'telephoneNumber' number. If I do not have an entry at 'telephoneNumber' (on LDAP server), Number1 could be the mobile or whatever number.

I dont know your implementation, but IMHO it should be simple to implement that feature.

1. By parsing the output of the single LDAP search or readout the result structure
2. By doing separate searches for each number attribute. (Pseudocode: foreach entry in "LDAP number attribute" do ldapsearch -LLL cn sn entry)

Of course, I can use standard attributes on the LDAP server or self-define attributes - that is not the point.

With the suggested "LDAP number attribute replacement string" it's possible to use a standard LDAP scheme such as inetOrgPerson. The "LDAP number attribute replacement string" is a phone-internal thing. It is just a 1:1 mapping and defines, which number type description the phone end user sees on the phone display. This implementation is very simple and flexible for the phone administrator.

Best regards,
