How to Use SecureAuth LDAP Tool

    Applies to:
  • SecureAuth Identity Platform
  • Legacy SecureAuth IdP
Deployment model:
  • Hybrid
  • Version Affected:  All

    Sometimes, we need to use the SecureAuth LDAP Tool to test outside of the IdP.

    1. Go to D:\MFCApp_Bin\Extras\LDAP Connection\SecureAuth.Tool.LDAPTool\SecureAuth.Tool.LDAPTool.exe
    (not the "ldapTool.exe" application)

    2. Run as Administrator

    3. Fill out the details of the LDAP connection similar to the format showed by default. Default configuration is shown below.

    With the Search Filter, you will need to replace userName with an actual user to look up. This filter can be something different than samAccountName, but it does need to look up a specific user to be a valid search.

    4. Try all three lookups (By DirectoryEntry, By DirectoryService.Protocol, and BySearchResult). Most likely all three won't work, but this should at least give you a bit more information to work with. LDAPS cert will also be shown if working properly.
