LDAP Mapping

Overview

GroundWork Monitor can authenticate/authorize through GroundWork or LDAP/AD.

Administrators can configure LDAP mapping of LDAP containers to GroundWork roles from one or more domains,  and reorder domains to control which are used. 

OpenLDAP and Active Directory servers need to be available and reachable from the GroundWork server on a defined port to use this feature. Users in LDAP/Active Directory groups corresponding to the GroundWork user/roles which are mapped will have access to GroundWork Monitor. You will also need to provide login credentials for an LDAP/AD search user to find and map the actual users and roles. Additionally, an LDAPS certificate can be chosen.

LDAP Management in GroundWork Monitor (Administration > LDAP) initially displays the authentication/authorization source options for GroundWork and LDAP/AD. Local (GroundWork) users will always work, even if LDAP is specified and mappings are defined. You can create and save LDAP configurations that can be switched on or off. You will of course need details of the domains you manage with LDAP/AD, and contexts for users and groups to map to roles in GroundWork Monitor.
