LDAP authentication does not work for Global Protect Clients

Hello,

 

We have got a working LDAP server profile. We have made sure user 'test' is listed on the group mapping.
 
Steps:
 
a) Setup group-mapping under Device->User Identification->Group Mapping Settings. Under 'Group Include List' pick a specific cn.
b) Device->Authentication Profile. Add a new profile and add the same cn under allowed list.
 
Error: LDAP Authentication Profile test

Any thought on this?

 

Thanks in advance.

I see an authentication success message in the logs 'Authentication succeeded for user "test"2.'

 

 

Can you try connecting from Global protect client with the same user and share the output from the authd.log. 

You can run a "tail follow yes mp-log authd.log" in the command line when attempting to connect from client.

Thanks for that. Below is the authd.log for user 'angusg'.

Re: LDAP authentication does not work for Global Protect Clients

when you add the username to the auth profile, does the user auto populate for you to select ?

@MickBall

 

Thanks. Your hint helped to figure out that I need to replace allow-list from “cn=test global protect users,ou=security groups,ou=user1,DC=test,DC=net” to individual users like test\user1.

I then added all the users in this list.

  

But this does not seem to be scalable. I even tried using the short name test\ test global protect users, which did not work.

 

Is there a better scalable solution?

In the logs i see this error "failed authentication for user 'angusg'. Reason: User is not in allowlist"

 

In your authentication profile change the user domain to none ( you will have to type it) and keep the user name modifier as

%USERINPUT%

Just start typing test global, this should also auto populate a matching group.

 

it works for me....
