Connection

Every node requires LDAP configuration/credentials (configured in the config-node) to create an instance of the client configured according to the following options:

  • url {string}: Active Directory server to connect to, e.g. ldap://ad.example.com.
  • username {string}: An account name capable of performing the operations desired.
  • password {string}: Password for the given username.

The configuration for the baseDN has to be configured seperately for each node.

  • baseDN {string}: The root DN from which all searches will be performed, e.g. dc=example,dc=com.
