Sure David . That's right , with the default port for LDAP over SSL set to  636  and the default
port for the LDAP server being 389  , I guess .

Those are the mandatory API inputs for CloudStack.
But almost all environments will require username/password for binding at a minimum, and you
should probably, and prolly offer the SSL option as well. Port should probably be an option

Without at least bind creds, the API configuration is practically useless on any modern LDAP
