Setting

Function

Name

Assign a name to this LDAP server configuration. Multiple configurations may be stored so this name should be unique.

Enable

Select Enable to enable the server or deselect it to disable a server. Disabled servers are not used for authentication. Servers can also be enabled/disabled from the right-click menu options.

Host

The fully qualified domain name or IP address of the LDAP server.

Port

The port used by the LDAP server (the default value is 389). Port numbers can be up to 6 digits long.

Use SSL

Select Use SSL to use an HTTPS binding between the client and the LDAP server. The server must be configured to support HTTPS bindings and the correct Port must be assigned (the HTTPS port is usually 636).

Independent User and Group Search Roots

Select Independent User and Group Search Roots to search two different structure trees within a User Directory. This enables the Group Search Root (DN format) field, which allows you to search for groups within a specified sub-tree in addition to searching for users within a specified sub-tree via the User Search Root (DN format) field.

This option is disabled by default.

User Search Root (DN format)

Enter the name of the sub-tree directory to search for users on the LDAP server. Users are expected to be unique within the specified sub-tree, as identified by the OnBase User Name Attribute.

Group Search Root (DN format)

Enter the name of the sub-tree directory to search for groups on the LDAP server. Groups are expected to be unique within the specified sub-tree, as identified by the OnBase Group Name Attribute.
