Organization Unit Open Interface Overview

PPM includes an interface for importing information. This open interface can import organizational models from third-party systems including LDAP databases, internally developed organization modeling systems, or human resources systems.

You should periodically synchronize the organizational model in PPM with the authoritative data source within your company. The synchronization process involves importing organization unit attributes of the various resources into the following interface tables:

These interface tables are described in Open Interface Data Models. The columns that can be used when importing organizational models are detailed in this section.

The Organization Unit Open Interface supports:

  • Simple imports

  • LDAP imports

For information on mapping your organization model, see the Resource Management User Guide. For information on user report types and running reports, see the Reports Guide and Reference. To review the LDAP authentication process, see LDAP Authentication.
