base_dn
string / required
Sets the base of the Distinguished Name (DN) of the directory service groups. The base should consist of only Domain Components (DCs). The base_dn will populate with a default value when a URI is entered by parsing domain components from the URI. The base DN should specify DC= for each domain component and multiple DCs should be separated by commas.
bind_password
string
Sets the password of the bind_user user name account.
bind_user
string
Sets the user name that can be used to bind to and query the directory.
For Active Directory, enter the username - often referred to as sAMAccountName or User Logon Name - of the account that is used to perform directory lookups.
For OpenLDAP, enter the full DN of the user.

uri
list
A list of up to 30 URIs of the directory servers. Each URI must include the scheme ldap:// or ldaps:// (for LDAP over SSL), a hostname, and a domain name or IP address. For example, ldap://ad.company.com configures the directory service with the hostname "ad" in the domain "company.com" while specifying the unencrypted LDAP protocol.
