Authentication using LDAP/AD

Not applicable


I'm trying to get LDAP authentication working using Active directory. I have created an LDAP server profile, an Authentication Profile and Group Mapping settings profile. When I'm setting up the Group mappings I can go in and see the entire directory tree and pick groups so I know that it is connecting the the AD server and pulling information. However, in the Authentication Profile, if I try to pick users for the allow list, it doesn't find anything from the AD only local users. I have tried creating a firewall Administrator using the LDAP profile, and cannot login. When I look at the system log, it says "authentication profile not found for user".

I'm obviously missing something somewhere, but can't figure it out.

Hi...Within the Authentication Profile, please make sure you set the authentication=LDAP and set the Server Profile=<LDAP server>.  Then select 'all' for the Allow List.  Please give that a try.  Thanks.

Thanks @rmonvon but those are the settings I currently have.


If you have 'all' selected under the Allow List, the authentication should work on all users.  There is another post where some users could not get the group listing to display.

Maybe you can check back on this other posting to see the result once they have contacted support.  Thanks.

Thank-you for the link. There is a suggestion in that thread that this might be a bug in 4.1.2 (which we are running). Has it been determined that it is a bug?
