If LDAP users are not able to authenticate while logging into Automation Studio or ROC then these steps can help identify the cause.
CA Release Automation can integrate with LDAP in two ways:
- Import/Add LDAP Users
- Import/Add LDAP Groups
In version 6.6 there are some changes worth noting:
- User and Directory Server management is now done via the ROC. In versions prior to 6.6 you needed to:
- Specify your directory servers in your distributed.properties file.
- Manage your users and their permissions in Automation Studio.
- Permissions for users and groups aggregate. When you assign a user to a group, the user has the group permissions and individual user permissions.
- In 6.5 and earlier, when groups were imported, group members could access CA Release Automation with group permissions but did not appear in the user list in the user interface. In 6.6, when groups are imported, group members who log in are displayed in the user list and can be assigned permissions individually just like regular users.
