after this, click on preferences, and go to the Ldap section and click on the activate LDAP slider.

Follow the steps to complete the configuration. Don't forget click on the Save button on the upper corner.

LDAP Users

For the time being Faraday doesn't support a hybrid installation using both LDAP and local users. Enabling LDAP disables local users and vice versa.

In order to configure LDAP, run the following command:

faraday-manage settings -a update ldap

Then update every field according to the configuration on-prem.

$ faraday-manage settings -a update ldap
Update settings for: ldap

Do you confirm your changes on ldap?

Remember to restart the server after doing changes!

If use_local_roles is set to true, any user on the AD will be allowed to use Faraday.
