You can make it easier and faster for users to log in to BasicOps by integrating with an LDAP-compatible authentication server. Your users can log in to BasicOps using their corporate password, eliminating the need for them to create and remember a new password.
Before you enable LDAP
To configure BasicOps to authenticate a user using an LDAP server, the server must be accessible from our cloud-based data center. This means that it must be a cloud-based server (such as an Azure AD server), or if it’s inside a corporate network, it must be made visible through the network's firewall.
For privacy and security reasons, the server should be configured to support LDAP over SSL.
This article describes how to configure an Azure AD server to use LDAP over SSL:

After configuring your LDAP/AD server, you can enable LDAP integration:
- In the Admin list, click Integrations.
- In the LDAP area, click Add.
- In the LDAP server configuration field, enter the server's LDAP access URL. For an LDAP-over-SSL server, the URL looks like this: ldaps://ldap.example.com
