Currently there are two ways to connect to Active Directory
- Active Directory with LDAP connector: Connect to Active Directory by using the usual Java LDAP connector. This is (mostly) standard-based and lightweight method. This is the recommended approach.
- Active Directory with the legacy .NET connector: Connect to Active Directory by using the old .NET Active Directory connector. This is a heavyweight and quite outdated method that requires remote .NET connector server. This is deprecated method. It is no longer supported.
