Configuring role-mapping rules for an Analyzer or a Collector

If the groups in your LDAP server correspond to the user roles in the Real User Analyzer or Real User Collector components, you can map those groups to the user roles. Mapping LDAP groups to user roles enables you to manage your user permissions for the Analyzer and Collector from your LDAP server. Should some of the users in the LDAP group require a different permission, you can override the group permission for those users. 

Users in any LDAP group that is not mapped to a role are assigned the catch-all user role when they attempt to log on. By default, the catch-all role is No Access, which prohibits access to the system.
