Hi @allencharp ,


To answer your question - Yes, SSC does support LDAPS connections.

If you have not already done so, I would suggest checking the configuration. Especially from the documentation details which can be found here -

Most likely some small detail needs correction from looking at your connection error shown above. Please try to check names and ports again.
