Configuring LDAP Authentication

NOTE:  If there is a LDAP server already, you do not need to create a new one.

If you use an LDAP server to authenticate your users, follow these steps.

To add the correct entries for your LDAP Server

  1. Open the Siebel Analytics Administration tool.
  2. Select Manage > Security > LDAP Servers.
  3. Select Action > New > LDAP Server. (Refer to Siebel Analytics Server Administration Guide.)
  4. Add the LDAP host server name.
  5. Set Base DN to the user that is contained in the session variable. For example, Base DN: ou=people,
  6. To test the connection, click the Test connection button.
  7. Navigate to Authentication—Initialization Block.
  8. Set Data Source Connection to LDAP.
  9. In the LDAP Server box, select the correct LDAP Server and click OK.
  10. Change Authorization and Login Properties to use OLTP Connection Pool, not DbAuth.
