PPM can bind to an Active Directory Server over LDAPS (SSL), as long as, you supply a valid certificate into the Java Keystore that we are using.
Note: In my example PPM is using the following Java Location:
1. Inside the following directory:
>> /opt/java/jdk1.8.0_121/jre/lib/security is the java keystore file called "cacerts".
Here you would need to import the certificate (<filename>.cer) that your security team provided you into this file. example:
>> keytool -import -keystore cacerts -alas <adcert> -file <certificate.cer> -keyalg RSA -trustcacerts -storepass changeit
2. Then inside your CSA under the Security Tab, update\configure the URL to:
Note: port 636 is traditionally the SSL for for Active Directory
3. Please recycle the whole solution:
