[keycloak-user] How read added mapper attribute from ldap?

There are two mappings here

Firstly you need an attribute mapper in user federation. This maps an LAP
attribute to a Keycloak one.
I don't think this works on existing users though. Try creating a new LDAP
user and log in as that user to test this.
Check the log. In my case it's at /var/log/wildfly/console.log but might
have been moved there by one of our devs.
Check USER_ATTRIBUTES table in the database. You should have a line for
your new attribute for your new user.
I know this doesn't work for multi-attribute values. eg we have an
'applications' attribute which users will have several entries.

Secondly you need to map the user attribute you created above to the JWT
This is under your client application definition.
You need a 'user attribute' not 'property' mapper to map the new keycloak
user attribute to a value in the token(s)
You also need to turn it on for either the id token or access token
depending on where your client expects it.
