Advanced LDAP configuration

PaperCut NG/MF supports the following LDAP server types out-of-the-box:

  • Novell eDirectory

  • Microsoft Active Directory

  • Unix/NIS/Posix

For more information about basic configuration options for these platforms, see Synchronize user and group details with LDAP

However, PaperCut NG/MF can support other server/schema types by defining the fields to query and the LDAP searches to perform. Configure these options in the Advanced Config Editor on the Options tab. The following config keys are available for the primary sync source:
