Interact with an LDAP database programmatically.
Background Information
LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is an application protocol for accessing and maintaining distributed directory information services, including user information, which can be used for authentication.
Available Tools
You can configure Caché to use LDAP authentication; see Using LDAP Authentication in the Caché Security Administration Guide. Also see the Caché Security Tutorial.
For more complex authentication requirements, InterSystems provides the following tools:
%SYS.LDAP class
Enables you to interface with an LDAP database. It provides methods you can use for authentication and for working with entries in the LDAP database.
See the %SYS.LDAP entry in the InterSystems Class Reference.
Availability: All namespaces.
Ensemble LDAP Outbound adapter
Sends requests to an LDAP server and receives responses.
See EnsLib.LDAP.OutboundAdapter in the InterSystems Class Reference.
Availability: All Ensemble-enabled namespaces.
