Adding an LDAP-managed account on an Analyzer or a Collector

An LDAP-managed account is one that you create on the Real User Analyzer or Real User Collector but is authenticated by your LDAP server. When you create the user account, you also specify the role of the user. You would use this procedure if you selected to use LDAP authentication and Local authorization.

Note

If you enabled the automatic account-creation policy, you do not need to perform this task.

Before you begin

You must have enabled the LDAP service on the Analyzer, as described in Selecting an account-management model for an Analyzer or a Collector.

  2. On the Action menu, click Add an Account.
  3. In the User Name box, enter the name for the account.
    Example, MyOperator.
  4. In the Authentication list, select LDAP.
  5. In the Role list, select a role for the user.
    Example: Operator.
  6. Click Save.
