Reading a Directory Object

The following code example retrieves the Jeff Smith user object from the LDAP directory.

<se:Envelope xmlns:se="">
   <se:Body xmlns="urn:oasis:names:tc:DSML:2:0:core">
         <searchRequest dn="cn=Jeff Smith,ou=Sales,dc=fabrikam,dc=com" scope="baseObject" derefAliases="neverDerefAliases">
               <present name="objectclass"/>

The se:Envelope and se:Body SOAP elements enclose the DSML payload. The first element of the DSML payload, batchRequest, is the mandatory top-level element for all DSML V2 requests. The searchRequest element requests the Jeff Smith user object from the directory.
