5.12 Configuring AEM forms on JEE to access LDAP

If you did not previously configure Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), you can use the following procedure as a guideline when configuring User Management to support authentication using LDAP.

Note: Skip these steps if you configured LDAP for previous LiveCycle products. LDAP configurations are migrated during the upgrade process.
  1. Open a web browser, navigate to http://localhost:8080/adminui, and log in. (See 5.9 Accessing AEM forms on JEE applications.)

  2. Click Settings > User Management > Domain Management, and click New Enterprise Domain.

  3. In the ID box, type a unique identifier for the domain.

  4. In the Name box, type a descriptive name for the domain.

  5. Click Add Authentication and, in the Authentication Provider list, select LDAP.

  6. Click OK and, on the page that appears, click Add Directory.

  7. In the Profile Name box, type a name, and then click Next.

  8. Specify values in the Server, Port, SSL, and Binding boxes, as required.

  9. Under Populate Page With, select a directory settings option (for example, select Default Sun ONE values), and then click Next.

  10. Configure User Settings as required, and then click Next.

  11. Configure Group Settings as required, and then click either Test or Finish.

  12. (Optional) Test your configuration:

    • Click Test.

    • In the Test Directory pane, in the Find box, enter an object name and, in the using box, select the object’s type, such as Login ID.

    • Click Test. If successful, your object’s details are displayed. You can then click Back.

  13. Click Finish to exit the Add Directory page, and then click OK again.
