LDAP Active Directory
This guide assumes you already have a forest/domain configured and that your environment is properly secured.
This is a basic configuration. You may want to set additional options or permissions in your forest/domain.
See also Delegated Authentication for single sign-on (SSO) integration.
To enable authentication with LDAP and Active Directory, the following needs to be done:
- Configure secure LDAP in your domain.
- Create a user and optionally an UO to use for LDAP authentication.
Configure Your EMS Server
- Set up an Element Cloud Enterprise server.
- Click the Integrations tab.
- Select LDAP from the list of available Advanced Authentication methods.
- Set the following configuration parameters:
Bind URI: ldaps://ldap.example.com:636 Base: OU=matrix,DC=example,DC=com Bind DN: CN=emsadmin,CN=Users,DC=example,DD=com Bind Password: supersecret UID: SamAccountName Display Name: See below Email: mail
- For Display Name, you have a few options based on your preference. For example:
- For a full list, open PowerShell on your domain controller and enter
Import-Module ActiveDirectory Get-ADUser test_user -Properties *
- Save your LDAP settings and wait for your EMS server to reprovision.
- Authentication in Element should now be working. If not, please look in the logs for your firewall or domain controllers or contact EMS support from our support form
