Hi Harish,

As the UME only can connect to an LDAP interface, it cannot map the user to some SQL DB structure only. So the simple answer to your question is: No.

What could be done is to write an import program (or more sophisticated: a synchronizing program) to import / synchronize (periodically) the users from the DB into the portal UME (DB). But that means to have the data redundant, not <i>that</i> nice...

It would be better to set up a real LDAP, import your existing data into that, and then connect the LDAP to the UME.

Hope it helps
