This topic describes the frequently asked questions about connecting to Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch through Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).

Q: Does Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch support LDAP?

A: Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch currently does not support LDAP. If you want to use LDAP to authenticate requests sent to your Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch instance, you must first create an on-premises Elasticsearch instance of the same version. Use the on-premises Elasticsearch instance to run an authentication test. If LDAP runs normally, send the corresponding configuration to the Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch technical engineer to configure LDAP for you.
