Test LDAP Connection

Version 4.0.24.2 (latest)

Test the connection settings for an LDAP configuration.

This tests that the connection is possible given a connection_host and connection_port.

connection_host and connection_port are required. connection_tls is optional.

Example:

{
  "connection_host": "ldap.example.com",
  "connection_port": "636",
  "connection_tls": true
}

No authentication to the LDAP server is attempted.

The active LDAP settings are not modified.

Calls to this endpoint may be denied by Looker (Google Cloud core).
