Hello @Jenni_S

It's still in Open state, waiting in Backlog. 

Maybe @UliW_MF can give us more details.

Hi @Jenni_S,

From I remember LDAPS is already available. See https://docs.microfocus.com/itom/Data_Protector:2019.08/LDAPConfiguration for configuration details. Does this work for you?

Well I've been struggling with it for over 1 week now and after logging a support case have received confirmation from L3 yesterday that LDAPS is not supported. The doc doesn't mention it either way so I've requested that that be updated too.

Hi @Jenni_S,

They refer to it as SLDAP (secured LDAP) and there is a section on Import SSL certificate from LDAP server. Please share the request ID with me and I will have a look.

Configuration of secure LDAP (SLDAP or LDAPS) is documented in DocOps.
