if (strpos($row['memberOf'],'company-phonebook') !== false) {
return true;
}
return false;

Telephone Book Fields in LDAP

Via the tab, in the Source column it is possible to define from which LDAP telephone book fields the information can be read from. The Variables in the left column define which information sets can be imported into the pascom phone system.

The preset fields are suggestions for the template. It is possible to add, modify and remove fields i.e. completely alter the import structure to match your requirements.

Test and Activate the Import Process

After you have finalised your configuration, you can test the connector profile to determine which datasets will be imported using the button. Once you are satisfied with the results, it is possible to either perform a one off import using the > option or automate the import to be performed at regular intervals by clicking the button.
