LDAP plug-ins in AR System

Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) provides a standard method for accessing information from a central directory. A common use for LDAP is user authentication. After users are set up in the LDAP directory, they can use their same user name and password to log in to any application that supports the LDAP protocol.

AR System  provides these LDAP plug-ins:

  • AR System Database Connectivity (ARDBC) LDAP—Accesses data objects stored in a directory service as if they were entries stored in a typical AR System  form. You can search for, modify, and create data in a directory service using this plug-in. You can also use the data in workflow and to populate character menus and table fields. See Using the ARDBC LDAP plug-in.
  • AR External Authentication (AREA) LDAP—Authenticates AR System  users against external LDAP directory services. See Using the AREA LDAP plug-in.
