    1 ) Correct

    2) User Provisioning. We don't support external LDAP and using Graph Azure AD API would give us that look-up capability.

    Thank you again for submitting this Idea!

    In order to continue with our review of this request, we need more detail on what is being reqested:

    1. We are assuming that what you are referring to is leveraging Microsoft Graph Azure AD APIs to get user information

      Is this correct?

    2. OpenPages currently has two independent usages of LDAP which are configured separately and perform different functions. Which of the below is this request referring to?

      1. User Authentication - on login using our native login page we delegate username and password checking LDAP

      2. User Provisioning experience - Ability to search a LDAP directory and "copy" or import user profile attributes from LDAP when creating an individual user.

    Please provide as much clarification per the above as you can.

    Thank you!
