Re: ATD AD configuration

Hi OussamaHamdi,

Username (DN)
User account to be used for accessing LDAP tree and searching for user credentials for ATD login.
Specify DN string for the user account.
For example, if you bind (login) to LDAP as Administrator under Users container in AD tree of test.local domain, it will be: cn=Administrator,cn=Users,dc=test,dc=local

Base DN
Specify the search base DN of your LDAP tree wherein user accounts are stored.
For example, if you wish to create LDAP user accounts under Users container in your AD tree tomo.local domain, the search base DN string will be:cn=Users,dc=test,dc=local

LDAP Scope
Specify the scope for LDAP search query for user account to be authenticated.
Subtree: Searches whole subtree from Base DN. We usually use it.
One Level: Searches just one level below from Base DN.
Base Level: Base DN itself. Not usually used.

Login Attribute
Specify the attribute to be looked for ATD authentication user name.
Enter the most appropriate one which you use in your LDAP tree.
sAMAccountName: Commonly used as user account name in Windows Active Directory domain, without @ and domain name part.
userPrincipalName: Commonly used as user account name in Windows AD, with @ and domain (e.g., john@test.local).
uid: User ID attribute type contains computer system login names associated with the object.
