LDAP - Issue in setting Bind DN

Contributor

1.Created new LDAP strategy to authenticate a group of users from AD.
2.Configured the User Settings & Group Settings which works good
3.I have configured LDAP under my User account - and i set the Bind DN accordingly
4.I could able to authenticate my group users successfully

When i Change the password of my account, i am losing my LDAP settings. Do i need to configure with a user name whose password never expires? (or) Is there way to update my password in Splunk LDAP strategy automatically when it got Changed ?

Kindly provide a solution to this -

You should create a user for splunk to bind to the AD, give it permissions and set the "password never expires" option. If you don't do it, you will have to go to

Manager » Access controls » Authentication method » LDAP strategies » YourLDAP

and change the password each time it expires or you change it.
