LDAP Basics
Posted by Conal Mullan on 22 February 2017 01:37 PM

* Once an LDAP server is added in OnSync admin, any user on that LDAP directory can log into OnSync using their LDAP (or Active Directory) credentials

* There is a "Group" feature where you can limit users that may log in to OnSync to that group. For example, your company LDAP contains 2000 employees, you create an "OnSync" group in your directory to which you add 500 employees, then only those 500 can log into OnSync.

* You can add multiple servers in OnSync admin (and in this way multiple, distinct groups)

* The Address Book will show ALL other LDAP group members

* Therefore the LDAP feature is NOT suitable for resellers : A reseller would not want to add one of their customers' LDAP details as it would mean all other customers could see that directory in their Address Book: LDAP is a feature for company specific deployments.
