Online docs would appear to be your friend :)

Configuring WebDAV Connector for LDAP authentication or single sign-on

No specific steps are needed to make use LDAP or SSO authentication work if you use WebDAV (if both are properly set up, as documented), as long as you ensure that your IIS authentication settings in the webdav/ folder are the same as for the Web site itself.

Configuring LDAP

  • Thanks David for sharing the link but I think HTTPS is require to use LDAP with WebDAV. Can you please confirm if this is mandatory? Configuring WebDAV Connector authentication under Configuring WebDAV Connector Jul 24, 2015 at 11:55

    This appears to be a limitation of the Windows WebDAV client. If you read through the instructions for configuring LDAP or SSO you find this text: "To use LDAP or single sign-on (SSO) to authenticate users in Content Manager, you must allow Basic authentication. A Windows WebDAV client refuses to use Basic authentication over a non-secure (non-HTTPS) connection. As a result, to use LDAP or SSO, you must use HTTPS." Jul 24, 2015 at 11:58
