User Story

As a PRTG User, I want to have a certain monitoring on my Active Directory. Due to this, i need to monitor LDAP connection.

Details of User Story

At the moment it's only possible to monitor the LDAP using a unsecure way (LDAP connect 389) instead of using the SSL connect (LDAPs 636) Microsoft highly recommends to turn off LDAP and switch over to LDAPs.

Acceptance criteria

LDAPs Sensor available


Released with PRTG version as Connection Security setting of the LDAP sensor
