Setup Guide

Follow these steps to connect Active Directory to your CData Connect Cloud account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the CData Connect Cloud dashboard.

  2. Click + Add Connection in the upper-right corner.

  3. Type Active Directory into the search field, then click the data source name.

  4. On the Basic Settings tab of the new connection, enter a connection name or keep the default name.

  5. Enter the host name or IP address of the Active Directory server into the Server field.

  6. Enter the port for connecting to the Active Directory server in the Port field.

  7. Enter the Active Directory username for authentication into User.

  8. Enter the user password.

  9. Enter the Base DN. Specifying a narrow base distinguished name limits the scope of searches and can increase performance.

  10. At the top of the CData Connect Cloud Add Active Directory Connection page, click Save & Test.

    • If the connection test succeeds, a message indicates that your connection has been created.

    • If the connection test fails, ensure that you entered your login information correctly with no stray spaces or other characters. Then, try again.
