How will this idea be used?

There is no PEM activity support to make API calls to LDAP services while onboarding the SFG Partner to the customer's LDAP application. We have a script that does basic ADD of partner userid and password to the LDAP via a Command Line service in B2Bi. PEM Activity should have the ability to make API calls for following actions, if applicable at our customer sites:
1. Create partner account with userid and password
2. Add SSH Key or SSL certificate to partner account in LDAP if multi-factor authentication is used
3. Update partner password if this is changed
4. Replace SSH Key or SSL certificate if partner wants to renew an expirting key or certificate.
NOTE: Delete action for this account in LDAP should be considered when we add the abilitty to delete a partner account from PEM activity and our customers allow this action. However, this will be restricted to the Sponsor users only and not the Partner.

    Dependent on REST APIs being available within LDAP. Our direction is to work through SEAS to address this.
