How do I set up additional external directory search locations?

If you want to add additional directory search locations that the Call Bridge will consult when Cisco Meeting App users perform searches, follow these steps:

  1. Use an app such as Chrome Postman to login to the Meeting Server API.
  2. Create an LDAP server entry in the Meeting Server. The figure below shows an ldapserver entry being POSTed to the Meeting Server at URL 192.168.6.25. The entry is for the LDAP server at URL 192.168.1.10, authorization information is provided.

POST LDAP server details to Acano Server

This step provides the necessary information to authorize the Callbridge to access the LDAP server.

  1. Use GET to obtain the ID of the LDAP server entry created in step 2.

  1. Create a DirectorySearchLocation by POSTing the LDAP server ID from step 3. The DirectorySearchLocation settings define the behavior of searching the directory. Ensure you set the data format to raw.
