LDAP is a protocol used to access and manage directory information services, such as user accounts, email addresses, and other network resources. An LDAP connection allows an LDAP client to communicate with an LDAP server to retrieve or modify information stored in the directory.


  • All Logsign versions support this integration.

Configure On LDAP

  • By connecting to the Ldap / AD server via Logsign, we can enrich the all logs with user attributes as automatically from Ldap / AD Server (such as Department Names, Display Names, Mobile Phones).
  • To establish an LDAP connection, an LDAP client sends an LDAP request to the LDAP server using a specific port number (default is 389 for LDAP and 636 for LDAP over SSL). The server then responds to the request by providing the requested information or by indicating that the requested information is not available.
  • LDAP connections can be secured by using SSL/TLS encryption to protect the data being transmitted between the client and server. LDAP connections can also be authenticated using various mechanisms, such as simple authentication or bind authentication, to ensure that only authorized users can access the directory information.
  • You can follow the notes on the need-to-know settings below and navigate accordingly.
  • BaseDN : BaseDN (base distinguished name) is an important concept in LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) that defines the starting point for a search within a directory. It specifies the top-most point in the directory tree where the LDAP search should begin.
  • Port : Default is 389 for LDAP and 636 for LDAP over SSL.
