Hello! I’ve been playing around with OPENQUERY in Ignition to pull more information from users who reside in Active Directory. I’ve had success pulling their names, employee IDs, etc., however, I am not able to query using tag/component values.
For example, lets say I have an employee ID that is 101. I can query it using:
SELECT * FROM OPENQUERY (AD,'Select cn
WHERE objectClass = ‘‘User’’ AND employeeID = 101
ORDER BY cn ASC ') AS tblAD
However, if I use a tag/component instead of directly writing the number, the query fails. I believe this is because there are many single and double quotes involved that it cannot distinguish it is a tag/component.
Is there any workaround for this? Can a transaction group be created that can do OPENQUERY?
(The only workaround I’ve found so far is to have the query as a string and concatenate the tag or component’s value)
