How to get Jenkins to authenticate to AD Domain?

This is using Jenkins server 2.87 on Redhat Enterprise Linux 6.8. Using local linux user database is the default settings. I saw that there is this LDAP option, but, no matter how I try, It can't seem to communicate with our production MS Windows Server 2012 R2-based AD domain.

I saw there is a plug-in section, does this mean I have to download and install this AD plug-in? How to get this Jenkins to connect to MS Windows AD Domain for authentication?

Thanks in advance.
