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 too.

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