Bug ENH-000103213


Add an option to enforce encrypted communication between Portal for ArcGIS and Active Directory.

Additional Information


Alternate Solution

Based off this link:


We can configure the GIS Server to use LDAPs communication when configuring security using LDAP style by using an URL like LDAPs ("ldapURLForUsers": "ldaps://bar2:10636/ou=users,ou=ags,dc=example,dc=com",).

However, there's not a similar style workflow for configuring Windows style connections. We default to secured connections, but fall back to unsecured if secured isn't available. In this use case, the user would like the option to prevent communication to AD if an encrypted channel is unavailable.
