Selecting the AD Provider

The LDAP Directory Service providers show the AD provider which is defined for the account. When you are defining the LDAP domain, select the AD Provider for your organization.

You can only edit the AD Provider, when there is a single domain defined for your account.

To select the AD provider for the domain:
  1. From the navigation menu, click Access > Directory Services, and select the LDAP tab or section.

  2. Click New, or click the AD Provider.

    The Edit or New Directory Service panel opens.

  3. From the General tab, in the AD Provider drop-down menu, select the provider.
