User directory connectors ApacheDS properties

The following property groups are available for user directory connectors of the type ApacheDS.

Identification

All fields are mandatory and must not be empty.

Property Description
Name The name of the UDC configuration, defined from the QMC.
Type

The UDC type.

User sync settings

Property Description Default value
Sync user data for existing users
  • When selected, only the existing users are synchronized. An existing user is a user who has logged in to Qlik Sense and/or been previously synchronized from the configured directory service.
  • When not selected, all the users, defined by the properties for the UDC, are synchronized from the configured directory service. You can create a filter to Active Directory, ApacheDS, or Generic LDAP if you only want to synchronize a selection of users.
Note: The user attributes are only synced when a user logs in to the hub. Even if you delete the user in the QMC, the active session is still valid for the user that has been deleted. If the hub is only refreshed, the user is added to the database, but without any attributes.

Selected

Connection

Property Description Default value

User directory name

Note: Not entered manually for Active Directory.
Must be unique, otherwise the connector will not be configured. The name of the UDC instance (to be compared to the domain name of an Active Directory). Together with the user's account name, this name makes a user unique.  
Path The URI used to connect to the directory server. To support SSL, specify the protocol as LDAPS instead. ldap://company.domain.com
User name The optional user ID used to connect to the directory server. If this is empty, the user running the Qlik Sense repository is used to log on to the directory server. -
Password The optional password for the user. -
Note: When a user creates an Active Directory connector, the connector will only work if the user running the Qlik Sense services is allowed to access the directory server. If the user running the Qlik Sense services is not allowed to access the directory server, a user name and a password that allows access to the directory server must be provided.

Advanced

The Advanced property group contains the advanced LDAP connector properties in the Qlik Sense system.

Property Description Default value
Additional LDAP filter Used as the LDAP query to retrieve the users in the directory. -
Synchronization timeout (seconds) The timeout for reading data from the data source. 240
Page size of search

Determines the number of posts retrieved when reading data from the data source.

Tip: If the user synchronization is unsuccessful, try setting the value to '0' (zero).

2000 (For ApacheDS: 1000)

Use optimized query

This property allows Qlik Sense to optimize the query for directories containing many groups in proportion to the number of users retrieved.

Warning: To be able to use the optimization, the directory must be set up so that the groups refer to the users. If the directory is not set up correctly, the optimized query will not find all groups connected to the users.

This property is only visible for Generic LDAP and Active directory search, (Active Directory always uses optimization).

Not selected

Directory entry attributes

The Directory entry attributes property group contains the directory entry attributes for the LDAP connector.

Note: The directory entry attributes are case-sensitive.
Property Description Default value

The attribute name that identifies the type of directory entry (only users and groups are used by the ApacheDS UDC). objectClass
User identification

The attribute value of the directory entry that identifies a user.

inetOrgPerson
Group identification The attribute value of the directory entry that identifies a group. groupOfNames

Group membership

The attribute name that indicates direct groups that a directory entry is a member of. Indirect group membership is resolved during the user synchronization.

This setting or the one below, Members of directory entry, is allowed to be empty, which means that the group membership is resolved using only one of the two settings.
