BVD support for a failover LDAP server

BVD support for a failover LDAP server

Business Value Dashboard currently allows integration with an Windows Active Directory for authentication via LDAP queries. I suggest an option to be added to allow the use of a secondary LDAP server in the BVD config file. This way authentication will not fail in case the main LDAP server is unavailable due to planned or unplanned maintenance.

Thank you,

LP

Hi,

BVD 2018.02 already allows specifying more than one LDAP servers. 

BVD 2018.02 uses the Container Deployment Foundation (CDF) and the LDAP part is configured in the CDF portal. It allows to specify multiple LDAP servers which are queried until a user is successfully authenticated. This addresses your backup-LDAP use case.
