LDAP and SAML potential conflicts


Level 1

Good morning,
we manage an AEM site for our customer.
We already have LDAP configured for authentication on author. We also have configured the Sync Handler.
Our customer asked us to implement SSO with SAML.
To configure SAML we checked these resources:
discussion https://experienceleaguecommunities.adobe.com/t5/adobe-experience-manager/set-up-aem-sso-authenticat...
AEM documentation https://experienceleague.adobe.com/en/docs/experience-manager-65/content/security/saml-2-0-authentic...

Our customer told us to keep LDAP configuration, they want to have both options to log into author. Our question is: can LDAP and SAML configuratons conflict, or can we implement both ?

Technically, you could work with both. I haven't tried it myself, but I think one thing you should consider is the duplication of users. What I would explore is the option to sync between SAML and LDAP first. I hope you can share your findings here.


Hope this helps.

Hi Esteban,

thanks for your reply.
Since sync with LDAP is lready working we think we would not flag user creation in SAML configuration to avoid problems.

Anyway I will write more about this subject as soon as we will implement Single Singn On with SAML.
