Set up SSL-encrypted LDAP integration (LDAPS)

Set up an SSL connection for your LDAP server.

Before you begin

Role required: admin

About this task

If you use an LDAPS integration and the default SSL port is 636, no further configuration is necessary; SSL is automatically enabled. If the LDAPS integration uses another SSL port, define the alternate SSL connection properties.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to System LDAP > LDAP Servers
  2. Select the LDAP server to configure.
  3. Under Related Links, click Advanced view.
  4. In the Server URL field, specify the LDAP IP address and alternate SSL communications port.
  5. Select the SSL check box.
    If this option does not appear on the form by default, configure the form and add it.
  6. Click Update.
    Note:

    Be sure a network administrator configures the local firewall to allow the application server to access the LDAP server. If the LDAP server is located within an internal network, the firewall forwards (or NATs) the application server's IP address through the firewall on the correct port.
