The people resource mapping describes the business logic behind the LDAP to JSON transformation and visa versa for the request and response objects. The actual people resource REST API is located in the REST API category and is named stoney core: People Resource - REST API.


  • for the resource objects there is most of the time a one-to-one mapping between LDAP attributes and JSON object
  • for collections only a subset of the resource object attributes will be returned which may be also be merged or otherwise mangled

This specification puts together the People frontend API (stoney core: People Resource - REST API) and the LDAP Data Backend (stoney core: OpenLDAP directory data organisation).
