Enable LDAP and sync teams and users¶
Once you enable LDAP you can sync your LDAP directory to the teams and users that are present in MKE.
To enable LDAP:
Log in to the MKE web UI as an MKE administrator.
In the left-side navigation panel, navigate to <user name> > Admin Settings > Authentication & Authorization.
Scroll down to the Identity Provider Integration section.
Toggle LDAP to Enabled. A list of LDAP settings displays.
Enter the values that correspond with your LDAP server installation.
Use the built-in MKE LDAP Test login tool to confirm that your LDAP settings are correctly configured.
To synchronize LDAP users into MKE teams:
In the left-side navigation panel, navigate to Access Control > Orgs & Teams and select an organization.
Click + to create a team.
Enter a team name and description.
Toggle ENABLE SYNC TEAM MEMBERS to Yes.
Choose between the following two methods for matching group members from an LDAP directory. Refer to the table below for more information.
Keep the default Match Search Results method and fill out Search Base DN, Search filter, and Search subtree instead of just one level as required.
Toggle LDAP MATCH METHOD to change the method for matching group members in the LDAP directory to Match Group Members.
Optional. Select Immediately Sync Team Members to run an LDAP sync operation after saving the configuration for the team.
Optional. To allow non-LDAP team members to sync the LDAP directory, select Allow non-LDAP members.
If you do not select Allow non-LDAP members, manually-added and SAML users are removed during the LDAP sync.
Repeat the preceding steps to synchronize LDAP users into additional teams.
There are two methods for matching group members from an LDAP directory:
Match Search Results (search bind)
Specifies that team members are synced using a search query against the LDAP directory of your organization. The team membership is synced to match the users in the search results.
Match Group Members (direct bind)
Specifies that team members are synced directly with members of a group in your LDAP directory. The team membership syncs to match the membership of the group.
