Configuring a FortiGate unit for FortiAuthenticator LDAP
When you have defined the FortiAuthenticator LDAP tree, you can configure FortiGate units to access the FortiAuthenticator as an LDAP server and authenticate users.
To configure the FortiGate unit for LDAP authentication:
- On the FortiGate unit, go to User & Device > LDAP Servers and select Create New.
- Enter the following information:
- Optionally, use the Test Connectivity and Test User Credentials features. Select OK to apply your settings.
- Add the LDAP server to a user group. Specify that user group in identity-based security policies where you require authentication.
