It is possible to configure a periodic "heartbeat" that checks the connection to External Auth, and it is also possible to have it attempt an LDAP bind (via the ea.ping.profile setting).
However, when it does this LDAP bind, it uses a fake user ("dummy") to bind. This causes constant bind failures and causes alerts in the LDAP service monitoring. If it was possible to configure this user to an actual user & password, it would eliminate the constant bind failures.
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
This will be used to minimize alerting and reduce load on the monitoring team.
