LDAP (Light Weight Directory Access Protocol) is an application protocol for accessing and maintaining distributed directory information services from LDAP server over an Internet Protocol (IP) network. The LDAP directory services provide an organized set of records, often with a hierarchical structure such as a corporate email directory.

When an LDAP user access Adeptia Suite, the username and password gets authenticated from the LDAP Server.
