    Our Active Directory [AD] domain controller [DC] uses a self-signed certificate.

    How can I configure LF to allow communication (LDAPs, TCP/636) with our AD infrastructure using the DC's self-signed certificate?

    TIA,

    LF does not care. If you want to connect using LDAPs you need just to match the hostname filled in the LDAP configuration with the Common Name (CN) in the certificate of the LDAP server.
    The underlying LDAP library LiquidFiles uses does not support validating the certificate against a CA. Only basic Certificate validation is performed.
    Please read more details about LDAP configuration: https://man.liquidfiles.com/configuration/ldap.html#connect
