LDAP Groups

Create an integration to manage users through an LDAP Group

LDAP Groups are fundamental Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) components. They enable centralized management of user permissions and access to network resources in complex IT environments.

Through this integration, Apono helps you securely manage the access of your users.

Apono ConnectorOn-prem connection serving as a bridge between an LDAP server and Apono:

The connector must have Admin permissions to LDAP in order to manage JIT access to LDAP groups.
Apono SecretValue generated in one of the following environments:
Apono does not store credentials. The Apono Connector uses the secret to communicate with services in your environment and separate the Apono web app from the environment for maximal security.
LDAP InformationInformation for the LDAP server:
  • Domain
  • LDAP Server URL

  • Self-signed server or CA certificate*
    Needed when the server does not have a properly signed certificate with a public CA

  • Groups Scope*
    Limits Apono to work with groups within the defined scope

  • User Scope*
    Limits Apono to work with users within the defined scope

  • User Email Attribute*
    Defines which user email to use

* This information is only necessary when the note is applicable.

Integrate an LDAP Group

Follow these steps to complete the integration:

  1. On the Catalog tab, click LDAP Group. The Connect LDAP Group page appears.
  2. From the dropdown menu, select a connector.


    If the desired connector is not listed, click + Add new connector and follow the instructions for creating a connector (AWS, Azure, GCP, Kubernetes).

  1. Click Next. The Complete setup page appears.
  2. Enter a unique, alphanumeric, user-friendly Integration Name. This name is used to identify this integration when constructing an Access Flow.
  3. Enter the LDAP Server URL. Default LDAP ports:
    1. No SSL - 389
    2. SSL - 636
  4. (Self-signed Certificates) Enter the Self assigned server or CA certificate.


    Leave this field blank unless the LDAP server does NOT have a properly-signed certificate with a public CA.

  5. Enter the Domain.
  6. (Optional) Enter the Groups Scope.


    When a scope is entered, Apono will only fetch groups within the specified scope. If this field is blank, Apono will fetch all groups within the LDAP directory.

  7. (Optional) Enter the Users Scope.


    When a scope is entered, Apono will only fetch users within the specified scope. If this field is blank, Apono will fetch all users within the LDAP directory.

  8. (Optional) Enter the User Email Attribute.


    When an attribute is defined, it enables Apono to determine which email to use. A user email attribute is helpful when users have multiple email addresses.

    If a user has multiple email addresses, each email address must exist within both the LDAP directory and Apono.

  9. Under Secret Store, associate the secret:
  10. Click Connect.

Now that you have completed this integration, you can create access flows that grant access to members of your LDAP Group.
