Now, if you happen to know what the DN suffix will be, an alternative to the search and bind method would be a direct bind where the required static information is added to the username to create the DN that is proffered to LDAP for the bind request.
Right, this is something like I was thinking about, especially on a domain-joined machine. I suppose I didn’t phrase it properly or concisely - that’s my bad.
No particular reason for this functionality; just didn’t know if it would be something worth adding in or how difficult it would be to code into the plugin. No worries!
Thanks for the quick reply!
