Configure the LDAP bind password

To avoid security risks, the bind password field in the exported configuration file (config.xml) is not configured. Before you import the configuration file into another system, ensure that you configure this password. This password overrides an existing password that is stored in the database. A null password does not override an existing non-null password value.
  1. In administration console, click Settings > User Management > Configuration > Import And Export Configuration Files.
  2. To export the current configuration setting to a file, click Export and save the configuration file in another location.
  3. In the file, locate the Domains > # > DirectoryConfigs > LDAPGroupConfig node. Here is an example:
     <node name="LDAPGroupConfig"> 
         <map> 
             <entry key="bindanonymously" value="false" />  
             <entry key="basedn" value="dc=corp,dc=adobe,dc=com" />  
             <entry key="batchSize" value="200" />  
             <entry key="binduser" value="cn=Directory Manager" />  
             <entry key="bindpassword" value="" /> 
         </map>
    
    
    Type a value for bindpassword and save your changes.
  4. In the file, locate the Domains > # > DirectoryConfigs > LDAPGroupConfig > LDAPUserConfig node. Here is an example:
     <node name="LDAPUserConfig"> 
         <map> 
             <entry key="bindanonymously" value="false" />  
             <entry key="batchSize" value="200" />  
             <entry key="basedn" value="dc=corp,dc=adobe,dc=com" />  
             <entry key="bindpassword" value="" /> 
             <entry key="binduser" value="cn=Directory Manager" />  
         </map>
    
    
    Type a value for bindpassword and save your changes.
  5. To import the updated file, in User Management, click Configuration > Import And Export Configuration Files.
  6. Click Browse to find the file, click Import, and then click OK.
