LDAP/AD Authentication

(Gratchie) #1

Question about ldap auth settings on UCP. Does this create computers/hosts in AD? What’s the reason for ldap admin user, if it already has a search account dn setting to use to look for accounts?

Hi gratchie,

We don’t create computer/hosts (machine accounts) in AD. We have future plans to integrate this but not at 1.0 GA.

Thanks for pointing out the admin issue; the LDAP admin field is a little unclear in the current beta release. What you are actually setting up is the UCP Admin info, not the LDAP Admin. Expect the wording to change and be more clear in the 1.0 GA release.

Hi Vivek,

Since there is also an UCP admin password field, I suppose it is not (yet?) possible to specify an LDAP group to give admin rights to a group of admins?

Hi almdocker,

Correct, as of now UCP Admins are manually added within the console. This is intentional in 1.0 to keep controlled access to UCP user/environment management, however we could look to modify in a future release.
