Configuring LDAP as a Authentication Provider in Eclipse


Configuring authentication providers within Eclipse is essential to ensure secure and streamlined user access. This article provides a comprehensive guide on how to set up authentication providers, focusing on LDAP configuration.

Configuration Steps

1. Log in as Site Admin

  • Access the Eclipse website and log in using your Site Admin credentials.

2. Navigate to Admin Tab

  • From the top navigation bar, click on the “Admin” tab to access administrative settings.

3. Access Authentication Providers

  • In the Admin section, locate and click on “Authentication Providers.”

4. Add New Authentication Provider (LDAP)

  • Within the Authentication Providers page, click on “–NEW–.”
  • Choose “LDAP” as the authentication provider type.

5. Configure LDAP Connections

Set up LDAP connection parameters as follows:

  • Domain: Enter the domain name (e.g., asg.local).
  • Host: Provide the LDAP host name (e.g., dc02.asg.local).
  • Root DN: Specify the root distinguished name (e.g., DC=asg,DC=local).
  • Port: Choose between standard or custom port settings.
  • Username: Provide the username for LDAP connection.
  • Password: Enter the password associated with the provided username.
  • LDAP Proxy: Utilize LDAP Proxy for handling connections (Note: This may affect Single Sign-On capability).
  • Instances: Add all applicable domain instances.
  • Filter: Define the filter criteria for automatically created accounts (select one domain for filtering).
  • Priority: Assign a priority number (lower numbers have higher priority).

6. Save Configuration

  • After entering the LDAP connection details, click “Save Settings” to save the configuration.

7. Replicate for Multiple Domains

  • If configuring for multiple domains, repeat these steps for each domain applicable to the client’s Eclipse Site.
  • Multiple domains can be configured under a single Eclipse Site.


By meticulously following these configuration steps, you can effectively set up authentication providers within Eclipse, specifically focusing on LDAP authentication. This ensures secure and efficient user access to the Eclipse platform. Customizing these settings allows you to tailor authentication to your organization’s unique needs while maintaining a high level of security and access control.
