Integrate Active Directory For Simple Authentication

From Secure Web Gateway
Jump to: navigation, search


Here i am integrating my Active Directory with following information. 

Active Directory FQDN : ad.safesquid.test

IP Address :

Domain of Active Directory : safesquid.test

Base Dn : dc=safesquid,dc=test

User Name : administrator@safesquid.test

See more about Integrate LDAP section, here we explained the working of each field in the Integrate LDAP section. 


Make sure that all the values (LDAP server FQDN, LDAP server IP, Username, password, base dn, domain ) in configuration are correct. If any value is wrong SafeSquid will fail to fetch the entries.

When you click on Save config, it will give a prompt for asking the confirmation to store your configuration  into the cloud. 
Select Yes only in below cases:
  • if you want to use this same       configuration in other SafeSquid instances.
  • if your total configuration in all sections is completed and validated. 

Otherwise select No and click on submit.
