Guidelines to create LDAP users with passwords update in the Active Directory & some LDAP connector limitations.

Note: LDAP connector is private connector & developed by WDCi. If you require any extensive support from WDCi. Please raise a ticket at


If you want to create/update users with passwords in the Active Directory then you need to use SSL connection.  It is restriction for Active Directory/LDAP provider. You are not able set passwords from Boomi without SSL connection.


At the present time, the LDAP Connector does not has the capability to use SSL certificate at connector level. You'll need to store the Active Directory SSL certificate in java key store where the atom/molecule hosted. Please refer below article to store SSL in the java key store:Generating and Importing an SSL Certificate signed by a Trusted Root Authority 


Current Limitations:

  1. Connection failures : please verify the maximum available connection at your LDAP provider. If possible try/catch to retry the failed documents when connection failure occur.
  2. SSL Connection : We are going to upgrade our connector to use SSL certificate at connector level.
  3. Batching option : At present LDAP connector will not support batching option. Please add your inputs in the feed back item, so that we will try to provide this batching option.
