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


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


Each <Column> element must have two attributes:



string, requiredName of the column in the result set coming from the database or attribute coming from LDAP


string, required

Name of the (internal) identifier to give the IdPAttribute representing the column or attribute
