LDAP

The KX Platform supports, LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) which is an open and cross platform protocol used for directory services authentication.

Enabling LDAP at deploy time

LDAP can be enabled at deploy time if you are using a custom install.config file. The following option should be added:

delta-control-use-ldap=1

This will result in DELTACONTROL_LDAP in delta.profile pointing to a configuration file called LDAP_EX.txt

export DELTACONTROL_LDAP=${DELTA_CONFIG}/LDAP_EX.txt

In order to start the deploy you will need to create the file and configure the LDAP settings. This is covered in the KX Control documentation.

Enabling LDAP post deploy

To enable LDAP post deploy, you can add the DELTACONTROL_LDAP variable to the delta.profile manually and point it to the LDAP configuration file on disk.

Linux

export DELTACONTROL_LDAP=${DELTA_CONFIG}/LDAP_EX.txt

Windows

set DELTACONTROL_LDAP=%DELTA_CONFIG%/LDAP_EX.txt
