Bridge Installation Guide for Ranger

Installation of a Bridge for Ranger is the same as for UDM Pro. Refer to the UDM Pro Bridge Installation documentation. Follow the documentation in that section and then return here to complete the configuration.

Once the bridge is installed go to the settings page and complete the Active Directory Sync settings. In most cases you do not need to complete all the fields the defaults shown in grey will suffice. The minimum required are the Server Host, Bind Username, Bind Password and syncing bridge. Note: The syncing bridge is not required when you are using the on-premise UDM server.


SettingDescription
Use SSL

Enable SSL connection to the AD server. When this is enabled you will also be given the opportunity to include a base64 encoded certificate

for the connection. This is only needed if the AD server is using a self-signed certificate or one signed by an unrecognised CA.

Server HostFQDN or IP address of an Active Directory Server or Global Catalog
Bind PasswordIf authentication is required to perform the LDAP query enter the password for the Bind account
Bind UsernameIf authentication is required to perform the LDAP query enter the username
Syncing Bridge

Select the bridge you will use for performing the AD sync.

Note: If you are using the on-premise version of the server and have less than 50,000 users you do not need to use a bridge.

Server Port

The port to connect to the server to query AD. You can connect to server for standard LDAP queries using port 389 or when using SSL port 636. .

If the server is a Global Catalog server you can use port 3268 or when using SSL port 3269 to do the queries.

Search Root

The search defines the location to start synchronizing from. If all the entries required to be synchronized are under a seperate OU you should use this as the root.

By using a refined search you will limit the number of entries retrieved, which will enhance performance.

Contact QueryThis defines the query to be used to find contacts in your AD. This normally doesn't need to be changed.
Group QueryThis defines the query to be used to find groups in your AD. This normally doesn't need to be changed.
User QueryThis defines the query to be used to find users in your AD. This normally doesn't need to be changed.
