LDAP is the most widely used protocol for accessing directory services.  It can be used to rapidly retrieve information in a variety of objects such as Groups, Locations, Organizations, and People.

The LDAP connector makes it possible to surface content from LDAP directories into a single consolidated search index, along with content from other repositories. The connector works with SharePoint Search, Azure Cognitive Search, Elasticsearch, AWS Elasticsearch, and Solr.


The LDAP Connector enables you to index Directory information from multiple LDAP-compliant Directory Services including Active Directory, OpenLDAP, OpenDJ and ViewDS.

The LDAP Connector:

  •  Supports Secured LDAP via LDAPS.
  • Supports both full and incremental crawls.
  • Indexes with very high throughput.
  • Information remains in LDAP, and the search index contains a pointer back to the source directory

Future-proof Your Investment

As new versions of Azure Cognitive Search, Elasticsearch, AWS Elasticsearch, Solr, and SharePoint Search are released, new features and functionality are introduced.  BA Insight takes on the burden of keeping the connector up to date for all supported search engines. The upgrades are easy to do and can be done by your IT organization. It is simply a matter of accessing the BA Insight customer portal, downloading the latest release, and installing and configuring it. If desired, our professional services team can handle the upgrades.
