Essbase 21c without shared services

I am planning to upgrade my Essbase 11.1.2.4 on premises environment to Essbase 21c on premises. Can I forego installing Shared Services and instead use the Weblogic FMW embedded LDAP for user authentication/security? Besides the administrative Essbase ID, we use a single generic login for Essbase queries, which are submitted via OAS/OBIEE by indivudual users. The OAS/OBIEE users have unique logins managed by Weblogic FMW embedded LDAP. I would like to manage my Essbase security the same way in the separate FMW instance that will be installed with Essbase 21c. My understanding is that I can use FMW to manage the Essbase security, but if I do, will it require an external authentication provider or can I just use embedded LDAP that comes with Weblogic FMW? Our environment is stand-alone and is not attached to the public internet. Thanks
