|LDAP server information|
The IP address or host name of the LDAP sever.
To use SASL, enter the host name (not the domain name).
If you have LDAP failover configuration, add several LDAP server hosts. This will help to handle a situation when one of the servers is down, and the other server is up and running. If the connection to the first server fails, BMC Helix SSO will automatically redirect the request to another server.
|Server Port||Port number of the LDAP server.|
|Use TLS connection||To enable TLS communication with the LDAP server, select this check box.||Not applicable|
|User information If you plan to use SASL authentication with the LDAP server, you do not need to specify the following fields:|
Type the distinguished name (DN) of an LDAP user.
This is the bind distinguished name for querying LDAP, and hence this account must have privileges to search the directory.
Enter the password of the LDAP user with the Bind DN.
|Users Base DN|
Starting location within the LDAP directory for performing user searches.
The search DNs should be as specific as possible for performance reasons. The depth of the search that is performed can be configured. If an object search is specified, then the Base DN should be the DN of the node containing the users.
|Server search and filtering options|
|Page Size||The page size of the LDAP server. By default, this value is set to 2000 entries. If your LDAP server is configured to return less than 2000 entries, you need to modify this value accordingly.|
|Enable Group Retrieval|
EnablesBMC Helix SSO to retrieve the groups list of an authenticated user as a part of the login process. Groups retrieval might be required by applications such as TrueSight Orchestration (formerly BMC Atrium Orchestrator) to support BMC Helix SSOauthorization.
|Search Scope||Specify the scope for search by selecting one of the available options.|
|LDAP Filter preset|
Select a preset to fill the LDAP filters with predefined values for the most common LDAP implementations.
To search within nested groups, select AD Hierarchical. You can clear the filters, and type queries for User Authentication and Group Support fields.

If you click the Preset button, the fields Bind DN and Bind Password are enabled and are marked as required.
Select a SASL authentication method.
|Quality of Protection||Specify the integrity and privacy protection that SASL mechanism should support.|
- Authentication only
- Authentication with integration protection
