The <Column> element specifies a mapping from a column in a database table or an attribute in an LDAP result set to an IdPAttribute name. In most cases this is equivalent to aliasing a result column in a SQL statement, but may be clearer to look at, and in the case of LDAP it provides missing aliasing capability.

Schema Name and Location

This element is defined by the urn:mace:shibboleth:2.0:resolver schema, which is located at http://shibboleth.net/schema/idp/shibboleth-attribute-resolver.xsd.

Example

<Column columnName="homephone" attributeID="phonenumber" />
<Column columnName="prenom" attributeID="firstname" />
