Workbench - querying LDAP from a different domain


Level 1

Hi There,


My organisation has multiple domains and I need to query users on a domain that is different to the one that the workbench process is running off of.

Usually when querying LDAP from any other software you can specify LDAP://,DC=com, however from what I can see with the LDAP task in workbench you can only specify the base DN, not the domain itself, so say I have and and my workbench process is on I can use DC=domainA,DC=com to query active directory users on, but if I try DC=domainB,DC=org, it seems to be actually trying to query the following: LDAP://,DC=org.

Is there any way to specify the actual domain in the LDAP task?


Kind Regards, Alex.

Here is how I understand the LDAP Query task:

There is a service which need to be configured to point t the LDAP server you want to query. This is done in the adminui:

Home > Services > Applications and Services > Service Management > Configure LDAPService


Did you set your server and domains in there?

Hi Kosta, thanks for the response. Is there any way to be able to point at multiple domains at the same time? As my organisation has multiple domains and I need to query active directory users from different domains in the same process. Kind Regards, Alex.
