Issue/Introduction

After following the "Enable LDAP Authentication" guide in the documentation, I am not able to connect to Identity Governance.

https://techdocs.broadcom.com/content/broadcom/techdocs/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/layer7-identity-and-access-management/identity-governance/14-3/configuring/authentication/how-to-enable-active-directory-and-ldap-authentication.html

 

Cause

The documentation is missing steps.

Environment

Release : 14.3

Component : GovernanceMinder(Role & Compliance Manager)

Resolution

The documentation states that you need to set sage.security.disable.ADAuthentication = to false this is incorrect. This needs to stay as True. You need to change security.authentication.ldap.disable = false.

Here is a configuration example:

sage.security.disable = false

security.authentication.ldap.disable = false

security.authentication.ldap.disable.ssl = true (I did not use SSL)

security.authentication.ldap.manager.dn = cn=dsaadmin,ou=im,ou=ca,o=com

security.authentication.ldap.server = IPAddress:port (10.10.10.10:19289)

security.authentication.ldap.manager.password = ManagerPassword

security.authentication.ldap.rootContext = rootDN (ou=ca,o=com)

security.authentication.ldap.lookupAttribute = uid (uniqueAtrrtibute)
