LDAP Active Directory and Azure Active Directory

  • Last updated on

You can configure Barracuda Cloud Control to synchronize users with LDAP Active Directory or Azure Active Directory as described in the sections that follow.

To ensure uninterrupted access to LDAP from the Barracuda Cloud, you must allow incoming connections from the following IP addresses.

  • 35.170.131.81
  • 54.156.244.63
  • 54.209.169.44

View Existing Directories and Groups

Complete the following steps to view existing directories and groups in Barracuda Cloud Control:

  1. From the Admin tab in Barracuda Cloud Control, click Directories. The Directories table includes a row indicating whether or not Authentication has been set to On or Off.

  2. Click View groups to display the groups associated with a configured directory.

  3. You can synchronize the listed groups to ensure that user information is up-to-date by clicking Sync groups.
  4. Click Edit for a specified group to modify the settings for the host or domain. When you have finished making changes, click SAVE.

  3. Select one of the following sections to add a new LDAP or Azure active directory.
Add a New LDAP Active Directory
  1. Select LDAP Active Directory.
  2. On the INFO tab, specify a new Directory Name.
  3. Activate the Authentication option to have users authenticate using their LDAP credentials. If you disable this option, users authenticate with Barracuda Cloud Control.

    Barracuda strongly recommends creating an additional administrator account using an independent domain that does not use Active Directory (AD) authentication. This allows you access to your Barracuda product account if your AD server goes down or fails.

  4. Click SAVE AND CONTINUE.
  5. On the HOST tab, specify the following for the LDAP host:
    • LDAP Host IP address 
    • LDAP Host Port – Use Port 389 for LDAP and LDAPTLS or Port 636 for LDAPS.
    • Base Domain Name (DN) – Any user or group that exists with the search base that will sync to Barracuda Networks. For example, DC=domain,DC=com.
    • Bind DN – Enter the bind domain name for a service account with read permissions to the active directory.
    • Password – Password associated with the service account.
    • Connection Security – Select SSLTLS, or None. For more information, see New Requirements for LDAP Authentication.
  6. (Optional) To add additional servers, click Add LDAP Host.
  7. If your LDAP server uses a self-signed certificate, toggle on the Allow Self-Signed Certificate setting.
  8. Click TEST CONNECTION to check connectivity to the host. If the connection fails, verify your settings are correct and that you have allowed the Barracuda Networks IP in your firewall. Contact Barracuda Technical Support for additional troubleshooting.
  9. If the connection succeeds, it displays as Connected. Click SAVE AND CONTINUE.

  1. Select Azure Active Directory.
  2. On the INFO tab, specify a new Directory Name. For example, "Office 365". 
  3. Click CONNECT TO MICROSOFT to sign into Microsoft and authorize Barracuda Cloud Control to connect to your Azure Active Directory account.
    1. Log in with your Office 365 administrator credentials.
    2. Accept the credentials for the application request.

  4. Activate the Authentication option to have users authenticate using their Azure credentials. If you disable this option, users authenticate with Barracuda Cloud Control.

    Barracuda strongly recommends creating an additional administrator account using an independent domain that does not use Active Directory (AD) authentication. This allows you access to your Barracuda product account if your AD server goes down or fails.

  5. After you are redirected back to the Barracuda Cloud Control, click Save.

Re-authorize an Azure Active Directory

Complete the following steps to reauthorize an existing Azure AD directory:

  1. Click the Edit option for the Azure AD directory you need to reauthorize from the Admin > Directories page.
  2. Click RE-AUTHORIZE.
    • If Barracuda's permissions were revoked from the LDAP account, you can use re-authorization to authenticate the linked Azure account and grant the  permissions again.
    • If the list of domains on the Azure account has been updated, you can use re-authorization to update the corresponding list of domains in AuthDB.

The original administrator who initially authorized the Barracuda permissions to the account does not have to be the one who re-authorizes the account. Another administrator on the same Azure account can complete this task. A non-administrator user on the same Azure account or any user on a different Azure account may not be used. The user who performed the most recent authorization is displayed above the RE-AUTHORIZE button.
