LDAP Configuration

LDAP General Information

Information about users, groups, and hosts of an organisation is usually stored in corporate directory systems. To implement a Single-Sign-On (SSO) policy or at least a Single-Password-Strategy, these systems are often used as single source, e.g. for user password information. Therefore it is reasonable to synchronize the Stages user database with these directory systems.

LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is an established protocol standard to interact with directory services. All major directory software providers support LDAP access to their directory.

This document describes how to synchronize the Stages user database with various LDAP directory systems (e.g. Microsoft Active Directory Server, OpenLDAP, Novell LDAP Services for NDS, Sun Directory Server, Lotus Domino).
