Using Active Roles SPML Provider

Using Active Roles SPML Provider

To access SPML Provider, use the following URL:

http://<HostName>/ARServerSPML/SPMLProvider.asmx

where the <HostName> stands for the name of the computer where SPML Provider is installed.

NOTE: The SPML Provider Web service is described by a Web Services Description Language (WSDL) file. To obtain a WSDL description of SPML Provider, navigate to http://<HostName>/ARServerSPML/SPMLProvider.asmx?WSDL.

Operation mode

SPML Provider can be configured to operate in:

  • Proxy mode  In this mode, SPML Provider accesses Active Directory, Azure AD, or AD LDS using the Active Roles proxy service. In proxy mode, SPML Provider extends Active Roles. Because SPML Provider uses open standards such as HTTP, XML, and SOAP, a greater level of interoperability with Active Roles is possible than is available with the Active Roles ADSI Provider.
  • Direct access mode  In this mode, SPML Provider directly accesses Active Directory, Azure AD, or AD LDS.

In proxy mode, SPML Provider can manage objects in Active Directory domains and AD LDS instances that are registered with Active Roles as managed domains and managed AD LDS instances, respectively. In direct access mode, SPML Provider can manage only objects in the domain or AD LDS instance to which SPML Provider is connected using the configuration setting such as the domain controller or AD LDS server.

TIP: To take advantages of the powerful functionality of Active Roles, we recommend that you use proxy mode whenever possible

Support for Active Roles controls

Active Roles implements special parameters called Active Roles controls (hereafter controls). The controls allow you to customize request processing.

In proxy mode, SPML Provider clients can send controls to the Active Roles Administration Service with an SPML request to perform an administrative operation. The Administration Service can process the controls. On the other hand, the Administration Service can return its own control to the SPML Provider client, and then the client can process that control. The controls a client sends to the Administration Service are referred to as InControls whereas the controls the Administration Service returns to the client are referred to as OutControls.

This section covers the following subjects:

  • Sending the InControl-type controls to the Active Roles Administration Service with an SPML request.
  • Specifying a set of the OutControl-type controls that the Active Roles Administration Service will return with an SPML response.

For more information about Active Roles controls and for the list of available built-in controls, see Active Roles SDK.

IMPORTANT: All elements described in this section must be defined at the beginning of your SPML request. For a sample of use, see later in this document.
