The problem I have is that the application is a workflow application that requires an approval. Approval names/IDs are stored in Active Directory. Is there an easy way to do a lookup into Active Directory from within a Notes Web application using just a LAN ID? We have a temporary workaround: a SQL table that is populated twice a day using AD information. Is there an easier way? I don't have the time to write a .NET Web service and I know our "administrator" will never allow synchronization between Domino and Active Directory. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions.
Why not just query the AD server as a trusted LDAP source? It should be able to return any value you need based on your query. Also, have you asked your administrator about synchronizing the directories? He'd probably be willing to look into it, and if not, I am sure your executives would be willing to look at it if you tell them it will save money and make the company more efficient.
