connection to LDAP server

Avatar

Former Community Member
Hello there,



currently we are evaluating Adobe Livecycle policy server. When trying to connect from Acrobat Pro, an internal user cannot login (an external user can log in). Therefore we suspect difficulties with the connection to the LDAP server: we configured the necessary settings in login-config.xml and added JASS authentification "UsernamePwd_Auth_Search".



Is it necessary to also specify an LDAP server in the Adobe Config web interface? If so, what data do I put there?

In this dialog, the searchfilter has no possibility to enter prefix and suffix, like in login-config.xml.



Thanks for any help,

Rainer

Rainer,

You definately need to specify an LDAP server. It will use the LDAP connection to create the

users and groups in Policy Server. If you haven't done this, then you essentially don't have any

internal users. The settings will depend upon the LDAP system that you are connecting to. I would

recommend consulting your LDAP administrator to determine the appropriate values to set in the

dialog (within the web interface).

Hallo Justin,



thanks a lot for your answer. However, I fear that I myself am the LDAP administrator ...



My problem is the search filter: It should look like (&(objectClass=*)(uid=USERNAME)) where USERNAME is the string to search for. How do I put that into the Web GUI ?



Do you have an example config that you could send to me (both login-config.xml and a dump of the webgui) ?



Thank you,

What type of LDAP system are you using?
