Minimum privilege for LDAP account in non domain ESM core

L4 Transporter

Hi Community,


Can anybody suggest on the minimum privileges a service account for LDAP (Settings -> Multi ESM -> DMZ AD configuration under ESM server) should have for using AD objects in ESM policy. The ESM core is not part of the domain. Having server operator privilege works fine, but i need to make the service account with very minimal permissions, preferably a read-only.


Thanks in advance.

Hi @Abdul_Razaq-


I hope all is well.  It is my understanding (haven't touched ESM in a few years now) that a role with read access is all that is required.  If you're having trouble with a read-access account, let me know and I can try to stand up an ESM to test.
