The purpose of this document is to describe the technical integration of the
WebSphere Datapower WebGUI login process with the LDAP server using Role
Based Management (RBM). RBM provides a flexible and integrated means to
control whether an authenticated user has the necessary privileges to access
resources through access policies.
IBM WebSphere Datapower firmware 3.7.x provides a new LDAP Search
Parameters WebGUI interface. The LDAP Search Parameters object serves as a
container for the parameters to perform an LDAP search operation. This can
now be used in the RBM as an added support to perform an LDAP search that
retrieves the Group of the user, and thus credential maps.
In our scenario, users must be defined with their respective groups in the
LDAP server. Users login to the appliance and only allowed to log in to the
authorized domains define... (more)
The purpose of this article is to describe the steps involve to configure
Datapower service for the Database communication. The service will parse the
incoming parameters from the request, construct a SQL query string and
returns the data from the Database, based on the constructed query.
For the demonstration, the following table "DataPowerTest" is created in MS
SQL Server. The following columns and data were added as well.
1. In the Datapower, create SQL Data Source with the following values

The Datapower appliances support the use of the FTP protocols for message
transport. The purpose of this article is to present number of common use
case scenarios for FTP polling, illustrating correct configurations of the
device to support the use case.
The use case scenarios are as follows:
1- FTP Poller - polling files in one directory and transfer them to another
2- FTP Poller – polling files from FTP SERVER and forward them to another
3- FTP Poller (sFTP – FTP over SSL) - polling files from FTP SERVER and
forward them to another service
4- FTP Poller (sF... (more)
All services running inside the Datapower need to be installed on the
appliance IP address and on the port. As the number of services increase on
the appliance, it does create complexity and following underline issues to
Exposure of internal ports (and IP address in some cases) to outside their
hosting network. Firewall configuration to allow traffic on different ports
(and IP addresses) of Datapower Maintaining IP addresses and ports as the
number of services increases on the appliance
There may be other solutions to handle the above mentioned issues but one of ... (more)
