LDAP Group authentication using sAMAccountName attribute

    Posted 05-18-2016 09:36 AM

    Hi,

     

    When importing a LDAP Group into Release Automation I can only log in using the upn (User Principal Name) attribute.

    Is there a way to log in Release Automation using the sAMAccountName attribute with LDAP Group authentication?

     

    FYI, I am using RA version 5.5.2.191

     

    Thanks.

    Hey,

     

    I think you can't, what I can tell you though is that it depends on the domain the user has whether or not he has to use the principal name. we can do currently the following:

     

    connected ldap to the domain "example.com"

     

    If the user now has a principal name "userTest@example.com" he can log on by just using "userTest", but if the user is in a subdomain, he needs to use the principal name.

     

    keep in mind, if you have something like that:

    - userA@example.com

    - userA@sub.example.com

     

    and the user logs in only using "userA" as username, CA RA will pick userA@example.com

     

    don't know if this helps in any way, but I just wanted to spread the word.

     

    best regards
