Issue/Introduction

My users can be local, remote and remote and local. How change a local user as remote and local?

 

Environment

Release : 12.3

Component : Workload Automation DE 

Resolution

When a user defined on the CA Workload Automation DE server with the Local only authentication mode has the same identifier as a user defined on the LDAP server, you can link the local user to the LDAP server by using the following steps:

1. Connect to the server as an administrator using CA WA Desktop Client.

2. Open the Admin perspective.

3. Right-click Security in the Admin view, and select Open from the pop-up menu. The Security view opens.

4. Right-click the local user that you want to link to the LDAP server, and select Link Users to Authentication Systems from the pop-up menu. The Link User to Authentication System dialog opens.

5. Select the Use remote and local authentication option button to change the authentication mode of the user to Remote and Local.
