Secure LDAP Connections

  • 1.  Secure LDAP Connections

    Posted Fri December 17, 2021 02:17 PM
    Hi IBM Community,

    I have a quick question regarding LDAP connections. Can you help please?

    Which protocol would be used for a secure port on your LDAP server if I were creating an LDAP connection from the Manage users page?

    Many thanks in advance,
    Jonathan

    Hi Jonathan,

    I believe the following topic addresses your question:
    https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/cloud-paks/cp-data/4.0?topic=users-connecting-your-identity-provider#ldap__no-iam

    In the LDAP protocol field:
    • If you are connecting to a secure port on your LDAP server, select ldaps://.
    • If you are connecting to an unsecured port on your LDAP server, select ldap://.

    The same is true in Cloud Pak for Data 3.5.0.

    I hope this helps.
