LDAP Attribute Mappings Reference

You can manually add an LDAP server to Jamf Pro by using the LDAP Server settings. Manually adding an LDAP server involves entering values for object classes and search bases, and then defining the LDAP attribute mappings.

For each LDAP server you set up in Jamf Pro, you must define the following:

  • Object Class Limitation

    When you configure the Object Class Limitation setting, you can choose Any ObjectClass Values or All ObjectClass Values.

  • Object Class

    When configuring the Object Class, you can choose top, person, organizational_Person, and user.

  • Search Base

    To ensure that the Active Directory search can find any user object in your domain, you must specify the root of the domain. For example, the search base string for a domain name of "example.com" would be the following: dc=example,dc=com

  • Search Scope

    You can either search all subtrees or the first level only.
