LDAP Connector

This guide describes how to install and use the IBM® Watson™ Explorer Engine LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) connector, which is available for Watson Explorer Engine.

The LDAP connector enables Watson Explorer Engine applications to crawl LDAP servers to collect user information for use with Watson Explorer applications.

To use the LDAP connector, you create one search collection. Due to the nature of an LDAP repository a security or "user" collection is not necessary. The procedure to configure the collection, as well as considerations you should make regarding security and API usage, are described in this documentation.

Additionally, this documentation contains a reference section, which describes the LDAP connector's configurable options, and tips on how to debug the connector should problems arise. Release notes, which are comprised of a version-specific change log, and a known issues section, conclude the LDAP connector documentation.
