If you are not using another method to populate your Icon’s directory (such as the Lifesize cloud-based service, UVC ClearSea or UVC Manager), you can configure your Lifesize system to load user information from an external directory that uses LDAP. When you integrate a directory server, user information from the directory server is available from the video system in > .
Configure the directory server integration in Preferences > Directory.
|Hostname||Hostname or IP address of your directory server.||No default|
|Username and password with login access to the directory server.||No default|
|Base||The base Distinguished Name (DN) used to query your directory server.||No default|
|Port||The directory server port.||No default|
|Encryption||If TLS is enabled, your Lifesize video system negotiates a secure connection on the directory server’s port.||None|
The LDAP directory refreshes its data when you navigate to > and 10 minutes have passed since the last refresh. A refresh occurs only if the directory is in use. Refreshing directory data includes adding new entries, updating existing entries, and deleting entries that are no longer in the server’s database.
