Stable. Works well.
This is the recommended connector to connect midPoint with the LDAP servers.
Connector for LDAP-based directory servers. Complete rewrite based on Apache Directory API. Apache-licensed.
The LDAP connector bundle also contains connectors for Active Directory and eDirectory. These connectors are specializations of the LDAP connector and support the LDAP quirks needed to work with AD and eDirectory.
This is an LDAP connector completely rewritten from scratch in 2015. It is using Apache Directory API and it is designed and built to work with recent ConnId versions and to take all the advantages of that. This is the supported and recommended LDAP and AD connector for midPoint. The old LDAP and AD connectors are now deprecated and they are no longer supported.
LDAP or LDAPS
Capabilities and Features
For LDAP servers that support Sun-style changelog (Retro ChangeLog) or modifyTimestamp.
AD DirSync synchronization supported.
No activation for generic LDAP as there is not LDAP standard for that. This can be simulated in midPoint.
Simple Paged Results and VLV
|Native attribute names||YES|
Use ri:dn instead of icfs:name
Use ri:entryUUID instead of icfs:uid
This is an LDAP connector completely rewritten from scratch during 2015. It was significantly improved in following years. Currently the LDAP connector is perfectly stable and tested in many deployments. It can be used with a variety o LDAP servers, including exotic and obsolete systems.

Upgrade of Apache Directory API (may fix some connection issues)
In theory the connector should work with any LDAPv3 compliant LDAP server. However, many servers claim LDAPv3 compliance while the reality is far from ideal. The connector supports "quirks" of several popular LDAP servers and it tolerates some violations of LDAPv3 standards.
The connector supports following servers (assuming reasonably recent versions of the servers):
- Active Directory (in a form of Active Directory Connector (LDAP))
In addition to this the connector was successfully tested with the following LDAP servers:
- ForgeRock OpenDJ / wren:DS
- 389 directory server / Red Hat Directory Server / Fedora Directory Server
- Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition (DSEE) / Sun One / Sun Java System / iPlanet Directory Server
- eDirectory (in a form of eDirectory Connector)
We know that the connector works with these servers and they are supported in some midPoint deployments. However, support for these servers is not part of standard midPoint subscription and it has to be negotiated separately.
If you are using this connector with a different directory server please let us know. We would like to know both about the positive and negative experiences.
