There can be more than one LDAP connection. In that case, they will be presented in the table with the following columns:

  • Connection Name
  • Host and Port
  • Base Domain
  • Certificate Status (green if there is a certificate entered; gray in case there's no certificate)

To connect to the entered LDAP connection, click the Connect option from the more menu of the connection you'd like to connect to. 

You'll be presented with the Loading popup. Once the data is obtained, you'll be able to choose the users you want to import (by clicking the checkbox next to their name) and assign them with an appropriate role*.

*The User role is set by default, but you'll be able to choose any role that exists in your organization from the dropdown.

You'll then be presented with a toast notification listing the number of users that were imported or updated successfully. 

In case you want to edit any of the connection fields, click the Edit option that appears once you hover over the row of the Connection you'd like to change. Once you edit the fields, you'll get the success toast notification. 

If you wish to delete an LDAP connection, click the Delete option that appears in the more menu of the connection row. You'll get the toast notification to confirm the successful action. Please note that there is no double confirmation.
