It would be beneficial for users to have the option to bulk export all Liferay users to a connected LDAP server. Liferay currently has a bulk import option however there is no way to do the reverse. This means that, in order to get all Liferay users into an LDAP server, one must individually export each user one at a time. This can become a difficult task with a large number of users. This feature would make it much easier for an admin to complete this task.
The following scenario illlustrates this:
- Configure LDAP connection from Control Panel
- Enable the export option
You will note Liferay exports a single user upon login or attribute change.
Add the option to bulk export users from Liferay to LDAP.
