Configure Sharp Printers to use Cloud LDAP

If your company uses Sharp printers with the Sharp MFP web-interface, you can connect them to allow for users to print items using their JumpCloud credentials via LDAP.

Note:

These steps were validated with Sharp MX-2651 printers, but should also apply to similar models.

To configure your Sharp MFP:

  1. Log in to the Sharp MFP’s web interface home page.
  2. Go to System Settings > Network Settings > LDAP Settings.
  3. Add a new Global Address Books List:
    • Name: JumpCloud
    • Search Root: ou=Users,o=YOUR_ORGANIZATION_ID,dc=jumpcloud,dc=com
    • LDAP Server: ldap.jumpcloud.com
    • User Name: YOUR_LDAP_SERVICE_ACCOUNT_USERNAME
    • Password: YOUR_LDAP_SERVICE_ACCOUNT_PASSWORD
    • Port Number: 636
    • User Name: YOUR_LDAP_SERVICE_ACCOUNT_USERNAME
    • Password: YOUR_LDAP_SERVICE_ACCOUNT_PASSWORD
    • Authentication Type: SIMPLE
    • Bind Prefix: uid
    • Server Usage: Address Book and User Authentication
    • Select To Be Used as Default.
    • Select Enable SSL.
  4. Under Connection Test, click Execute, and then Submit to save.

Important:

Sharp recommends rebooting the MFP once the new settings are submitted.

You can then configure the permissions on the printer(s) within the Sharp MFP web-interface. Consult Sharp's documentation and resources for their best practices and configuration steps for permissions. JumpCloud users can then be be found in Global Address Search within the MFP web-interface.
