Identity Governance - Authenticating using LDAP Server


Article ID: 198714


Updated On:


CA Identity Manager CA Identity Governance CA Identity Portal CA Identity Suite


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



The documentation is missing steps.


Release : 14.3

Component : GovernanceMinder(Role & Compliance Manager)


The documentation states that you need to set = 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: = 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 (

security.authentication.ldap.manager.password = ManagerPassword

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

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