Integrating with LDAP

You can add Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) associations to BigFix.

That allows you and other users to log in to the console using those credentials. The same advantage applies also to Web Reports.

Follow the instructions provided in the next topics to learn how to integrate BigFix with a Generic LDAP or with Active Directory.
Note: If you are using SSL to integrate BigFix with a Generic LDAP server or with an Active Directory server, take into account that BigFix does not support the SSL connection to LDAP servers or Active Directory servers through a load balancer or a DNS alias.

After you completed the steps to integrate with one of these two types of LDAP, you can associate LDAP users or groups to BigFix Console operators or roles as described in Adding LDAP Operators and Associating an LDAP group.
