LDAP_BIND_DN Statement

LDAP_BIND_DN Statement

The LDAP_BIND_DN statement specifies the identity of the LDAP search user.
Linux, UNIX, and Windows
LDAP_BIND_EPWD, LDAP_BIND_PWD, LDAP_BIND_TIMEOUT, LDAP_SASL_MECH
No
LDAP_BIND_DN="
search_user_distinguished_name
"
For the
search_user_distinguished_name
variable, enter the distinguished name of an LDAP user with authority to connect to the LDAP server and conduct a search for the PowerExchange user. Enclose the
search_user_distinguished_name
value in double quotation marks (").
  • If you do not define the LDAP_BIND_DN statement or the LDAP_SASL_MECH statement, the LDAP client does not attempt to perform a bind and instead performs unauthenticated operations.
  • If you specify an empty string in the LDAP_BIND_DN statement, the LDAP client requests an anonymous bind. An anonymous bind is acceptable if the LDAP server has been configured to allow anonymous access.
  • If you configure LDAP TLS to require client certification and specify a SASL mechanism of EXTERNAL, the LDAP_BIND_DN statement is ignored and the identity of the search user is determined from the client certificate and the certificate mapping of the LDAP server.
