Understanding the PeopleSoft LDAP Solution

Three PeopleSoft-delivered technologies enable you to:

The three technologies are:

The combination of these three technologies provides a flexible way to configure PeopleSoft for integration with your directory server. No set schema is required in the directory. Instead, you can configure and extend the Signon PeopleCode to work with any schema implemented in your directory server.

The topics in this documentation describe setting up the LDAP integration technology on your site. The tasks assume that an LDAP V3 compliant directory service is already installed, and that you intend to import LDAP group values and apply them to PeopleSoft roles.

Note: When you enable LDAP authentication, the password column on the PSOPRDEFN record is no longer used. Directory-level users are not authenticated against the PSOPRDEFN table; they are authenticated by Signon PeopleCode. Because Signon PeopleCode only runs on the application server, LDAP authentication requires an application server. That is, LDAP authentication does not work for a two-tier signon.
