Issues with Group Mapping



We just recently moved to PA-500 and we are running 7.1.6. I was able to successfully add my LDAP to my group mapping however when I try to select my security groups instead of showing "Domain\GroupName" it is showing the AD distinguished name like cn=administrator,cn=users,dc=acme,dc=com. And maybe this is the reason why my url filtering security policies doesn't works.

Hi jeffrey.wee,


Have you configured the Group mapping under Device->User Identification->Group Mapping?


This "cn=administrator,cn=users,dc=acme,dc=com" looks to me like a user account rather than a group(?). The best way to confirm what you are adding in the Security policy is a group is if you look at the icon to the left of the name it should show up a picture of 2 ppl for group and 1 for a user, similar to how AD shows the group and users.


Check the status on the CLI:

> show user group-mapping state all 

This will show you the groups you are importing and available to use in Security policies.


Hope this helps.
