The password is displayed too which is unfortunate but a separate issue.

You can configure the JNDISourceAdapter to only retrieve specified attributes from LDAP. Similar to an LDAP URL, if you don't specify the attributes you want, you get all that are readable by the principal you are bound as.

So, you can either control the access to the ldap directory given to the principal that the JNDISourceAdapter uses to bind to ldap, or you can list the attributes you want pulled into grouper (or signet) in <attribute> elements in sources.xml. See <> for the syntax.

I suspect this doesn't arise often in practice because read access to the userPassword attribute in a production ldap directory is commonly quite restricted.
