3.7.27. SASLMechanism Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

If UseSASL is enabled, this optional parameter specifies what SASL mechanisms are to be used to authenticate the connection to the LDAP server. SASLMechanism is a space-separated list of mechanism names supported by Authen::SASL, such as
  • ANONYMOUS
  • CRAM-MD5
  • DIGEST-MD5
  • EXTERNAL
  • LOGIN
  • PLAIN
The default value is DIGEST-MD5. If you change this, it is possible that you need also to change your SASL to LDAP user mapping. See your SASL system documentation for details on what mechanisms are supported.
Here is an example of using SASLMechanism:
