REST and LDAP
Easily Access Identity Data and Integrate with Your Services
Traditionally, directory servers relied solely on LDAP SDKs for access, which works, but most developers prefer something more familiar, accessible, and modern. Now you no longer need to be an LDAP expert.
ForgeRock Directory Services is the first LDAP directory to support a range of developer options including a REST API, SCIM, LDAP, and DSML-based Web Services. And for the traditionalists, the Directory Services SDK provides a library of Java classes and interfaces for accessing and implementing LDAP directory services.
- Delivers a developer-friendly platform that is the only directory solution in the world to offer a simple-to-use RESTful API, extending directory services to a much larger community of developers.
- Supports High Availability Proxy Protocol v1 and v2 for LDAPs so you gain visibility into a requesting client when your directory service is behind a proxy. Appropriate access and security decisions can then be applied to allow or disallow access to these clients.
- Combines the power and security of a proven LDAP directory with the easy accessibility of a REST database query.
- Offers a flexible data model that lets developers choose REST, SCIM, LDAP, or Web Services for access to directory data.
