XenMobile

LDAP device policy

You create an LDAP policy for iOS devices in XenMobile to provide information about an LDAP server to use, including any necessary account information. The policy also provides a set of LDAP search policies to use when querying the LDAP server.

You need the LDAP host name before configuring this policy.

To add or configure this policy, go to Configure > Device Policies. For more information, see Device policies.
