The Sync LDAP User Directory Manager is a hybrid solution that allows you to make use of the user objects from your organization's LDAP server and maintaining organization structure (organization / department / group) locally inside Joget.

This plugin allows you to import user objects from LDAP server on demand into Joget built in user directory manager to reduce its dependency on the LDAP server for improved performance.

The primary benefit for using Sync LDAP is better performance for user-data related processing

    • Joget only talks to LDAP for AD user authentication, everything else refers to local record

The built in user directory manager is still the primary handler when this plugin is activated. Once you have synchronized the users to the local directory manager, you can assign the users to your organization/department/group/grade which created locally.

With the use of this plugin, we will be able to reduce the conventional load and dependency on the LDAP server and to only use it for authentication purpose.

A new feature added in Joget DX is the "Auto schedule sync" property. The Joget admin can also click on the Sync Users button to manually perform an LDAP sync.

Joget identifies users on Sync LDAP if the password column in database is "(NULL)", which causes the following to take place:


  • If there's a new user in LDAP, it will be created in Joget user database. If a user from LDAP does not exist anymore in LDAP but exists in Joget, then the user will get disabled/inactive in Joget, and it will never be deleted.
    • If LDAP user is deleted from AD, it will not delete the record in dir_user
    • Upon sync, related local user record will be set to inactive
    • If local user record is deleted instead but still exist in AD, it will just be re-imported again upon next sync
