Configure Directory Search for Joomla LDAP/Active Directory

Joomla LDAP Search Directory Plugin allows you to search and display the users present in your Active Directory / LDAP Server on a Joomla page using a shortcode. The users will be fetched from the Active Directory/LDAP Server dynamically. Any of the Active Directory/LDAP users will not be created in your Joomla website and no user information will be stored in Joomla. Our plugin will seamlessly allow you to search through your business directory, employee directory or any other search directory from your Joomla website.
