Breeze/Connect Enterprise Server LDAP Synchronization configuration for MS Active Directory

Introduction:

LDAP Synchronization allows the Connect/Breeze Administrator to import user accounts and pertinent information existing in an external LDAP directory.

It provides the following benefits:

  • If you already have an external authentication system with lots of user accounts in it, the Breeze/Connect Administrator doesnt have to manually create user accounts.
  • The user doesnt have to come up with another user id and can use the same account that he/she already has been using.

Connect/Breeze can pull the data from any LDAP v3 compatible servers. These include openLDAP, Microsoft ActiveDirectory, SunONE LDAP and Novel eDirectory.

The following tables provide the most common values that might be used to configure LDAP synchronization for ActiveDirectory.
