LDAP : Lightweight Directory Access Protocol
EveryCloud Technologies control panel LDAP module, enables a direct, light weight query to be established with a designated on-premises AD (Active Directory) infrastructure: our LDAP modules are optimised for Microsoft's Active Directory .
The LDAP query script runs continually every 3 hours from 07:30 GMT. During the synchronisation query, users and users aliases may be synchronised to EveryCloud Technologies control panel, which are then available from within the management tab -> users
LDAP synchronisation data maybe used in two different ways
- Synchronised users may log into the control panel at https://cp.everycloudtech.com/ using there own Active Directory passwords if this option is enabled/defined within the control panel
- The Flash control panel is still available here - https://control.everycloudtech.com.
- The inbound email relay check if set to 'Control panel', as an alternative to SMTP relay checking, verify with the previous LDAP user synchronisation results if a user is a genuine deliverable address.
Please be advised that the LDAP sync is performed in a linear fashion starting at the times outlined above. By linear fashion we mean that the system script traverses through each customers LDAP configuration one at a time , so although the sync starts at for example 07:30 GMT and then every 3 hours , the sync will begin in alphabetical domain and traverse through, each domains LDAP settings and connecting harvesting users accordingly.
This means that it is not a multi threaded feature and so their will be some delay before the script arrives at a specific customers settings and there will be a delay before those users which have been harvested are then deployed to the back end databases and consequently the customers front end control panel view.
