Loading Data Page using an activity
I want to use an auto-complete field to show a list of employees filtered by characters that user types in the field. The design that I have in mind is that I will link this field with a data page which will be of Code-Pega-List type and will be defined as follows
In order to implement this I following design in mind
1. The data is sourced from LDAP which is accessible through Authentication Service (Data-Admin-Authservice). I am not sure if there is a "connector" available to get data from an Authentication Service.
2. This means that I must use a function to run this service and get the data. I guess I will have to use a "Load Activity" to run this function which I don't want to use as Pega doesn't recommend it.
I will appreciate if someone can look at this and let me know if this is a good design or if there is a better alternate way to achieve same
If your LDAP server exposes REST APIs, you can leverage Pega REST connector to pull information from your LDAP server and use the connector as the data source on your data page. Authentication service is meant for a different purpose and is not suited to your use case.
