Once you have enabled LDAP, you will need to undertake the following:

  • The IP addresses of our administration server is and - you need to whitelist these so we can access your server.  
  • Complete the connection details for your server as outlined below.

The following information is required for Vivi to connect to your LDAP.

LDAP HostnameIP address or hostname we can use to find your server.
LDAP PortUsually 389, or 636 for LDAPS.
LDAP SecurityWhat security to use. For "None", information is sent in plaintext (not recommended). For "LDAPS", LDAP is tunnelled through TLS. For "StartTLS", TLS is used within LDAP.
LDAP Tree BaseBase of your AD tree, e.g. "dc=example,dc=com".

Full DN of the Vivi admin user on your AD server, e.g. "cn=ViviAdmin,ou=Users,dc=example,dc=com". Only requires permission to search users and access basic user attributes, including group membership.

LDAP Admin PasswordPassword of the Vivi admin user on your AD server
LDAP Presenter GroupFull DN of the group of users who will be given the presenter privilege, e.g. "cn=ViviPresenters,ou=Users,dc=example,dc=com". You can use an existing group, or create a new one for this purpose.
LDAP Student Group

Full DN of the group of other users allowed to access Vivi, e.g. "cn=ViviStudents,ou=Users,dc=example,dc=com". You can use an existing group, or create a new one for this purpose.

Please note, the DNs shown above are illustrative only. Your DNs will be different. The best way to find the actual DN you need is to right click on the object - select properties and then navigate to the Attribute Editor. Look for "distinguishedName" in the attributes and then copy and paste the value. 

Note: Nested Groups are supported in the Student and Presenter groups.

LDAP should now be ready to test. Open the Vivi App (or restart if already open) and attempt to sign in with the username and password of an account in one of the appropriate groups.
