On Wednesday, October 15, 2021, we will officially retire LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) as a source of authentication to the Quickbase platform. For more detail, see LDAP for single sign-on reaching End of Life on Oct 15, 2021.
Many organizations have implemented LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol), to let users access multiple secure directories using only their network login. Realms are compatible with LDAP, saving your users the need to remember separate user names and passwords.
An added advantage to using LDAP authentication is that you can give any user who squares with your LDAP directory “approved” status in your realm (what's approval status?). This setup is a handy way to automate application access restrictions.
To implement LDAP:
The LDAP server must support incoming SSL handshake requests using Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0/ Secure Socket Layer (SSL) 3.0 or above.
