1) Is my observation correct? i.e the keycol used to map the LDAP entries
to SQL data expects the primary key (id) to be of type integer.
2) If #1 is correct, do we have a way to support VARCHAR datatype for the
primary key? In my application, we use GUID (alpha-numeric characters) as
the primary key.
back-sql, as noted in the man page, is experimental. It is also
unmaintained and known to have various issues. It generally needs someone
who has interest in it to start supporting it. So YMMV on what you can and
cannot do. It's generally better to use a supported native backend.
