Adding High Availability for LDAP

When connecting the WSO2 Identity Server to an external LDAP user store, it may be necessary to have high availability for the LDAP as it includes user information that must be available at all times. To attain high availability for your LDAP, you would replicate the LDAP server to effectively handle failover.

This topic provides instructions on how to configure the WSO2 Identity Server when you add high availability to your LDAP.

  1. Open the <IS_HOME>/repository/conf/deployment.toml file and find the user store manager config relevant for your LDAP.

    [user_store]
    type = "read_write_ldap"
    ...

  2. Failover for LDAP is configured by defining LDAP connection URLs. Add connection_url to the deployment.toml. Refer to the following example.

    [user_store]
    type = "read_write_ldap"
    connection_url = "ldap://localhost:10500 ldap://localhost:10511"
    ...

    Note

    This can be done for either a primary or secondary LDAP user store with failover configuration. In this example, if you cannot connect to ldap://localhost:10500, you can automatically connect to ldap://localhost:10511.

    Note
