Role - Group Mappings

The Group Mappings panel lets you identify the LDAP queries used for obtaining user information from an LDAP registry so that information can be associated with the current role.

The Group Mappings panel is only available when you are editing an existing role. The Role wizard does not display this panel when you are creating a new role.

Define an automation principal that is used for accessing the LDAP server. For more information about creating automation principals that can be used when obtaining information from an LDAP server, see Synchronizing users with LDAP servers.

  • The user is enabled for Active Directory/Kerberos authentication.
  • The user is assigned to the role being synchronized, if he or she is not already included in that role.
