Is "Bind Password" any "admin" password or is it something special

I recently learned that Bind Password requirements might be needed in future Cloudron integrations so I'm upgrading my VPN Client's minimal PHP Cloudron LDAP library (if anyone wants it, let me know and I'll package it for ya). Anyway, I looked it up with this page: https://docs.cloudron.io/user-management/
and all it has about the bind password is that it's the
admin passwordbut I don't exactly know which admin it means? @appdev
@Lonk It's not an admin password, it's what's available in the env var : https://docs.cloudron.io/custom-apps/addons/#ldap
@Lonk Some apps' LDAP plugins may call it "admin password", because the app itself binds as "admin" to the LDAP server to check "user" credentials.

Oh, that’s easy. It’s already there in the environment variables. Cool, I’ll adjust my library to include it so that the app doesn’t break when Cloudron starts enforcing the bind password (which it’s only not for 4 apps I guess - so when / if they ever support it, Cloudron will require the password).
Thank you so much @mehdi. Sometimes I miss the easiest of things.
