Data Out

Connector inserts output data into a  data.pickle file.

 

Data from the file can be loaded using the following Python code:


import pickle


with open('data.pickle', 'rb') as f:

    data = pickle.load(f)


Data structure loaded from pickle file is a list of tuples, where each result tuple is of the form (dn,entry), where: 

 

  • dn is a string containing the DN (distinguished name) of the entry
  • entry is a dictionary containing the attributes

Attribute types are used as string dictionary keys and attribute values are stored in a list as dictionary values.
