What can this extension do?
This extension was created because we had a need to get an automatically generated list of employees to populate our Company Directory. Without wanting to have to mess with a lot of formatting and still have a nice table displayed, I put together this script to take care of it.
When installed, CompanyDirectory will show up under the Users heading on the Special Pages list. On this page you will find a wiki formatted table with all the information of the users from the user group you specify. Simply copy and paste this table into a page, and repeat this process when the directory has been updated.
The fileset is downloadable from here for now. I want to transfer the file to MediaWiki, but I guess you can't upload zips?
To install this extension, copy the CompanyDirectory folder to /extensions/ and add the following to LocalSettings.php:
Edit CD_config.inc.php to fit your system and change the CSS options to get the table to fit your wiki's style. Here is a sample for the ficticious company PretendSite:
/** * Define LDAP Settings */ define('ACCT_SUFFIX', '@pretendsite.com'); define('LDAP_DOMAIN', 'dc01.pretendsite.com'); define('LDAP_BASEDN', 'DC=pretendsite,DC=com'); //Generally the same as ACCT_SUFFIX, just broken up //Domain admin account for searching define('LDAP_USERNAME', 'ldapsearcher'); define('LDAP_PASSWD', 'searchpasswd'); define('LDAP_SSL', false); define('LDAP_TLS', false); //Do not set TLS to true if SSL is true define('LDAP_GROUP', 'All Users'); //Group to make list from /** * Define CSS attributes */ define('HEADER_HEX', '#074f90'); define('HDRFONT_HEX', '#ffffff'); define('ODD_HEX', '#ffffff'); define('EVEN_HEX', '#efefef'); define('TBL_BORDER', '0px'); define('CELL_SPACING', '0px'); define('CELL_PADDING', '5px');
Click here to see a sample output and displayed table form that output.
- Configuration options for fields output from active directory.
- Automated display on page of choice instead of copy/paste.
The LDAP php class included with this extension was obtained from: http://adldap.sourceforge.net/ I have found this class to be incredibly helpful and have used it on many internal projects requiring LDAP interfacing. I modified this class file slightly to allow for a single config file for the extension.
This extension is set to be accessible only by admins from SpecialPages.
