Expose app groups in the LDAP interface directory information tree

Limited EA: This is a Limited Early Access (LEA) feature, and it is available to a limited audience. To enable it, contact your Customer Success Manager (CSM) or Okta Support.

To assist you with your access control decisions, you can define the Okta groups and app groups you want exposed in the LDAP interface directory information tree (DIT).

After exposing app groups, users without administrator permissions who search for their own user entry should use the User Base DN and not the Base DN in their search queries. Users searching for group memberships must use the complete Group DN with the memberOf filter or an empty result is returned.

  2. Select an LDAP interface instance and click Edit.
