Integrate with an LDAP directory

MKE integrates with LDAP directory services, thus allowing you to manage users and groups from your organization directory and to automatically propagate the information to MKE and MSR.

Once you enable LDAP, MKE uses a remote directory server to create users automatically, and all logins are forwarded thereafter to the directory server.

When you switch from built-in authentication to LDAP authentication, all manually created users whose usernames fail to match any LDAP search results remain available.

When you enable LDAP authentication, you configure MKE to create user accounts only when users log in for the first time.


If you enable SAML integration, you cannot enable LDAP for authentication. This does not affect local MKE user account authentication.
