FPCLdapMatchingPattern Object

The FPCLdapMatchingPattern object represents a logon string pattern that is mapped to a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server set. When the logon string supplied by an LDAP user matches the pattern, Forefront TMG queries the LDAP servers in the associated LDAP server set to authenticate the user.

When Active Directory® directory service authentication is required and the Forefront TMG computer belongs to a workgroup or to a domain in a forest other than the one that contains the user's account, the Forefront TMG computer must connect to a domain controller over an LDAP protocol (LDAP, LDAPS, LDAP-GC, and LDAPS-GC are supported) to authenticate the user, and the domain controller acts as an LDAP server. Because each domain controller is only able to authenticate the users in its domain, Forefront TMG by default queries the global catalog for the forest to validate the user's credentials. The user must enter credentials recognized by Active Directory in one of these formats:

When an LDAP user supplies a user name in one of these formats (for example, contoso\stephanie or stephanie@contoso.com), Forefront TMG tests the logon string patterns in the list of logon string patterns to find a pattern that matches the user name supplied by the user. When a match is found, Forefront TMG uses the LDAP server set specified in the LDAPServersSet property to authenticate the user. If no match is found, authentication fails. Note that if the user name does not contain any slash (\) or at sign (@) characters, Forefront TMG adds the default domain of the Web listener to the user name. (For example, stephanie becomes contoso\stephanie.)

The logon string pattern specified in the PatternString property may contain asterisks, as in contoso\* and *@domain.com.

The FPCLdapMatchingPattern object is an element of an FPCLdapMatchingPatterns collection, and a new object representing an LDAP server can be created by calling the Add method of this collection.

Inheritance

This object inherits from the FPCPersist object, which contains methods and properties related to the persistent storage of an object's data. They include methods for exporting an object's data to and importing it from XML documents.

Methods

The FPCLdapMatchingPattern object defines the following method.

Method Description

SetLDAPServersSet

Sets the LDAP server set that will be associated with the logon string pattern.

Properties

The FPCLdapMatchingPattern object defines the following properties.

Property Description

LDAPServersSet

Gets an FPCRef object that references the FPCLDAPServersSet collection representing the LDAP server set associated with the logon string pattern.

Order

Gets the ordinal position of the logon string pattern in the list of logon string patterns, which corresponds to the order in which the logon string patterns are tested to find the matching LDAP server set.

PatternString

Gets or sets the logon string pattern.

Methods Inherited from FPCPersist

Name Description
CancelWaitForChanges Cancels the registration established by the WaitForChanges method (for use in C and C++ programming only).
CanImport Returns a Boolean value that indicates whether the properties of the object and its subobject can be imported from the specified XML document.
Export Writes the stored values of all of the properties of the object and its subobject to the specified XML document.
ExportToFile Writes the stored values of all of the properties of the object and its subobject to the specified XML file.
GetServiceRestartMask Retrieves a 32-bit bitmask of the FpcServices enumerated type that specifies which services need to be restarted for currently unsaved changes to take effect.
Import Copies the values of all of the properties of the object and its subobject from the specified XML document to persistent storage.
ImportFromFile Copies the values of all of the properties of the object and its subobject from the specified XML file to persistent storage.
LoadDocProperties Provides the XML document's properties so that you can know what information can be imported from the document.
Refresh Reads the values of all of the properties of the object and its subobject from persistent storage, overwriting any changes that have not been saved.
Save Writes the current values of all of the properties of the object and its subobject to persistent storage.
WaitForChanges Registers to wait for an event indicating that the contents of the object have changed (for use in C and C++ programming only).

Properties Inherited from FPCPersist

Name Description
PersistentName Gets the persistent name of the object. The persistent name of an object is a name that is unique for the object at the respective level of the COM object hierarchy.
VendorParameterSets Gets an FPCVendorParametersSets object that can hold sets of custom data for extending the object.

Interfaces for C++ Programming

This object implements the IFPCLdapMatchingPattern interface.

Requirements
