Using the Connect action

Use the Connect action to establish a connection with an Active Directory server. This is the first action you must use to automate an Active Directory related task.

This action enables you to provide the server credentials and details, and associate this information with a session name. Use this same session name for the other Active Directory actions so that you have to provide the server information only once.


To establish a connection with an Active Directory server, follow these steps:

  1. In the Actions palette, double-click or drag the Connect action from the Active Directory package.
  2. Enter a session name.
  3. Enter or create the LDAP URL:
    • Parent path: Enter the LDAP URL that identifies the server that hosts the Active Directory services.

      For example, LDAP://,DC=com

    • Build parent path: Create the LDAP URL:
      1. Click the Build parent path option to connect to the Active Directory server.
      2. In the Connect to server window, enter the host and domain credentials, and click Connect.
      3. In the Object Explorer window, select the specific path from the Objects panel.
      4. Verify the selected LDAP URL path in the Preview field and click Apply.
  4. In the Login user field, provide your username with one of the following options:
  5. In the Login password field, provide your password with one of the following options:
  6. Click Save.
