I'd add a word of caution to this advice Tom. For sites with Directory
entries containing "reasonable amounts of data" this could be a significant
performance problem. If ldappc is accessing the directory with a priv'd identity
allowing access to all attributes and you are a site that stores pictures
in the directory - then you will get back huge amounts of data where it is
not required. I would advise each site to consider its own environment and
their performance needs and gauge for themselves whether or not they should
specify the <atttribute> elements. While it will be "easiest" to simply
remove these elements - it is usually wiser to include them and only specify
the attributes really needed for best performance and an understanding of how
and why things work.

add an attribute element referring to the key value that links your grouper DB to ldap person objects (in our case, this is brownBRUID )

Note that <attribute> elements are only used by the JNDISourceAdapter. If any are present, only the listed attributes are returned in LDAP queries initiated by JNDISourceAdapter. If none are present, all attributes are returned in the LDAP query. So you can also just remove all <attribute> elements from sources.xml.
