Configure LDAP to Authenticating a User

To configure the LDAP method for authenticating a user, you can adapt an already existing authentication rule.

Modify the names and settings within this rule in a way that makes them suitable for LDAP authentication.

  1. Import the Explicit Proxy Authentication and Authorization rule set from the rule set library.
    NOTE: This rule set is for authentication in explicit proxy mode. For a transparent mode, import the Authentication Server rule set.
  2. Adapt the authentication rule in the nested Authenticate with User Database rule set to make it suitable for LDAP authentication.
    NOTE: For a transparent mode, adapt the authentication rule in the nested Authentication Server rule set.
    1. Rename the current rule name to Authenticate with LDAP.
    2. Rename the settings of the Authentication.Authenticate property to a name that is appropriate for LDAP-related settings, for example, LDAP.
    3. Modify the settings to make them suitable for LDAP authentication.
  3. Rename the nested rule set to Authenticate with LDAP.

    NOTE: Instead of adapting the nested library rule set, you can also disable or delete it and create a new nested rule set for LDAP authentication.

    The second nested rule set of the Explicit Proxy Authentication and Authorization library rule set, Authorize User Groups, is not needed for LDAP authentication.

    If you delete this nested rule set, you should rename the nesting rule set or have only one rule set named, for example, Explicit Proxy Authentication with LDAP.
