3.45.2. BaseDN Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

This is the base DN, where searches are made. It is used in similar way as with all LDAP modules. For more information, see Section 3.9.1. BaseDN.
Special formatting characters are permitted. When using <AuthBy LDAP2>, %0 is replaced by UsernameAttr and %1 by the user name.
On some LDAP servers, you can get a significant performance increase by narrowing the search to the exact entry you are interested in. With AuthBy LDAP2 default settings, this example restricts the search to uid=username,ou=foo,o=bar,c=au:
BaseDN      %0=%1,ou=foo,o=bar,c=au
