Are you looking for SSO to Office 365?
Best practice is to use ADFS with web proxy.

Here is the link I followed.

AD is an LDAP server. Not 100% sure what you are asking.

Hi,
If it's about vCenter SSO then below article might help to find the identity source (AD Domain) used for SSO.

By SSO, if you mean to say that you want to use LADP for Single Sign-On the below are the settings -

Basic LDAP Settings are as below -

Go to Administration » Login Plus » Single Sign-On and enable LDAP method.

If you are going to use system only internally within your company, set the option to use only SSO authentication. This would show up LDAP login form without option to register in community.

Each time new user logs in against LDAP server, UseResponse internal account is created. To eliminate sending internal registration credentials, Disable Registration Email.

Other basic settings includes connection to your LDAP server:

   
  • LDAP (Host, Port, Connection Version) - state hostname or IP of your LDAP server. Default settings are localhost, port 389, connection version 3. When server has secure connection add ldaps:// to hostname;
  • BaseDN - Base Distinguished Name for your Active Directory with default value dc=localhost;
  • LDAP Admin / Password - if your LDAP server requires authentication to grab the data, enter administration credentials for connection.

You can always test connection to your LDAP server with saved settings. Click on "Test Connection" and enter username and password of any user on your LDAP server.
