Configuring Adobe Experience Manager 6 to use Apache Directory Service

You can configure Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) 6 to  synchronize user account information from a third-party LDAP service. By configuring AEM to use a third-party LDAP service, you can authenticate LDAP users when logging into AEM. This article describes how to setup Apache Directory service (a popular open source LDAP service), create a new user, configure AEM 6 to use Apache Directory service, and finally login to AEM with the new user entered into Apache Directory service.

To configure AEM 6 to use LDAP, you configure these OSGi configuration settings:
  • Apache Jackrabbit Oak LDAP Identity Provider
  • Apache Jackrabbit Default Sync Handler
  • Apache Jackrabbit External Login Module
This AEM community article walks you through how to configure AEM 6 to authenticate Apache Directory service users. To read this development article, click
