Connector Detail


Apache Directory

Apache Directory is a certified LDAPv3-compatible open source project of the Apache Software Foundation


Connect to Apache


Our Apache Directory Studio integration uses a common Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) based connector for accessing and maintaining distributed directory information services over an Internet Protocol (IP) network.

We use SCIM protocols to connect to your Apache Directory instance using REST APIs.

Account in Apache Directory

IDHub pulls all Apache Directory user account information from your Apache Directory instance through a specific Distinguished Name (DN) or multiple DNs.

User Account attribute we fetch includes (but not limited to):

  • samAccountName (As a unique identifier)
  • Common Name
  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Display Name
  • Telephone Number
  • Email-Addresses
  • Department
  • Title
  • Employee Type

Our customers can choose to fetch any other attributes apart from the above as per their individual needs. With our Attribute based Access Control (ABAC), you can decide which information will be used on new user creation and which ones on user modifications.

Entitlements in Apache Directory

IDHub LDAP Connector pulls only 1 types of entitlement from Apache Directory for provisioning and de-provisioning.

  • Directory Groups

Employees of your organization can request for Apache Directory Groups as needed.

Apache Directory Groups

As part of LDAP connector, we establish connection with Apache Directory to fetch all directory groups. We can customize and target a Distinguished Name (DN) while fetching and add additional configurations:

  • Target specific DN to fetch and fetch only parent directory
  • Target specific DN to fetch and fetch parent and child directories
  • Target multiple DN and fetch all directories

All the above configurations will pull directory as ‘Entitlements’

Users will be able to request for directory access from IDHub.

Upon completion of approvals based on request workflow defined by you on a particular directory, the users will automatically get access to the requested directory by our automated fulfillment, thus automatically providing access to the child directories as per rules of Apache Directory.

Support and Maintenance

IDHub provides out of the box connector issue support and timely maintenance as a standard quality guarantee for all of our customers having our Cloud solution. However, any customization made to existing connectors requires managed services support plan for support and maintenance.
