What are ConnId result handlers?

Those "result handlers" are an artifact of an original original Identity Connector Framework over-engineering. The handlers are supposed to assist connectors by implementing "mechanism" that the connector or resource does not support - such as search result filtering, data normalization and so on. However, those handler are generic and they know nothing about the particulars of the resource that the connector connects to. Therefore in vast majority of cases those handlers just get into the way and they distort the data. Good connectors usually do not need those handlers at all. Unfortunately, these handler are enabled by default and there is no way for a connector to tell the framework to turn them off. The handlers needs to be explicitly disabled in the resource configuration:

Code Block
<resource>
    ...
    <connectorConfiguration>
        ...
        <icfc:resultsHandlerConfiguration>
            <icfc:enableNormalizingResultsHandler>false</icfc:enableNormalizingResultsHandler>
            <icfc:enableFilteredResultsHandler>false</icfc:enableFilteredResultsHandler>
            <icfc:enableAttributesToGetSearchResultsHandler>false</icfc:enableAttributesToGetSearchResultsHandler>
        </icfc:resultsHandlerConfiguration>
    </connectorConfiguration>
    ...
</resource>

We strongly recommend to disable all the handlers when working with well-designed connectors in general and when working with our LDAP or AD/LDAP connectors in particular.
