Expand the 'Authentication settings' menu to define user connection on SES8.
If LDAP is activated, Administrators can set a number of LDAP settings, including:
In order to use LDAP on SES8, it is necessary to map the attributes required to identify a user - Email, Given Name/First Name and Family Name - from the LDAP database to the server.
If LDAP is chosen as the authentication mode, administrators can set up a mapping to automatically create groups in SES from LDAP information.
When the user logs on, the LDAP attribute containing the group names (usually 'memberOf') will be automatically imported as a SES8 group and the user will be added to this group.
Identifying LDAP settings
To find LDAP details, you can run the following queries from any member server on your Windows domain:
To find users:
dsquery user -name "John"
This will list all users who's name is John
To find details of a user and identify attributes names:
dsquery * "OU=John_Doe,DC=your,DC=domain,DC=com" -attr *
