LDAP Authentication

The LDAP authentication page can be accessed via The Administer Menu:

Administer > LDAP authentication

The LDAP authentication page forms a part of orcharhino’s user management. (See also: User Management Guide).

The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is an application layer protocol from the Internet protocol suite. orcharhino’s LDAP authentication can be used to automatically create orcharhino user accounts for any users of one or more preexisting LDAP directories. This can save organizations using LDAP directories for user management a significant amount of administrative work. Organizations that do not already use (or plan to use) LDAP can simply ignore this feature.
