K4 Directory Services Integration

Managing User Accounts Centrally

vjoon K4® supports the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) for implementing access to information administered by directory services. This information is used for managing user accounts in vjoon K4, and can optionally be used for user authentication. Basically, you have two ways to configure directory services within vjoon K4. You can administer settings centrally in your K4 Server Admin and assign them to the publications you want as a preset – or, you can configure the settings you want to use for each publication individually.


  • Manage all user accounts centrally at a minimum administration effort.
  • Reduce support costs by a centralized management.
  • Increase and standardize security policies within your entire company.
  • Provide centrally managed security for business critical data.
