LDAP search settings

LDAP search setting Description
Base search DN Enter the root of the tree in LDAP, underneath which your users and groups are defined.
User UID attribute Enter the name of the attribute that contains the user’s login name:
  • For Active Directory: sAMAccountName
  • For LDAP: uid
Custom search filter Use to limit user search results, or to filter to only user entries in LDAP (filtering out non-user entries that are present in the user directory).
Test LDAP search Enter a username and click Test LDAP Search to test your search settings. This test queries the LDAP directory for the given user using your current settings, and displays the number of records located, if any.
Best Practice: Make sure this test is successful before continuing.
