Cannot get info from AD

I am using LdapContrib plugin to authenticate users on our Active Directory. This works great.

What I want to use LdapNgPlugin for is to create a Telephone List generated from the Active Directory data as a topic. I have tried the following:
  header="| Nr | Name | Mail | Telephone |$n" 
  format="| $index | $cn | $mail | $telephoneNumber |"
| Nr | Name | Mail | Telephone |


and got the results:

ERROR: 34: 0000208F: NameErr: DSID-031001BA, problem 2006 (BAD_NAME), data 8350, best match of: 'OU=users,OU-Sasolburg,DC=karbochem,DC=co,DC=za'
Nr    Name    Mail    Telephone

Note that my LocalSite.cfg settings are defined here.

What am i doing wrong?

Your base is wrong. Remove the brackets. Try OU=users,OU-Sasolburg,DC=karbochem,DC=co,DC=za as the error message suggests.

Ok, so that was a duh moment! Thanks for pointing that out. Obviously is works like a charm. Thanks Michael.

Can't seem to sort properly. Tried to include sort="displayName" but does not sort at all. Any suggestions?

Also: if a attribute does not exist in the AD, it returns the name of the attribute e.g. if $mobile is used to get the mobile number, and it does not exist for a particular user, the text "$mobile" is inserted instead of the expected "" How can I change this behaviour to return ""?

Have a look at the clear param.

Check out the examples.

The 'clear' parameter seemed to do the trick. Thanks
