Blackboard supports the following directory servers:
- Novell eDirectory
- Microsoft Active Directory
- Default Open LDAP Configuration
What to Expect...
LDAP can be set up at any stage of your rollout. There is, however, a powerful tool integrated into Web Community Manager (WCM) called the Section Robot that allows you to simultaneously import users, create sections and pages, and assign editorial privileges in one easy step. We highly recommend that you take advantage of this tool first and enable LDAP after you have completed your import. You can then flag LDAP users as needed.
Your Project Manager will provide information on next steps when you are ready to begin your LDAP project.
