How to add Active Directory groups as consumers in Rational Asset Manager

Abhilash Boinapally (011114) | asked Jul 11 '12, 8:59 a.m.
In Rational Asset Manager, how to add active directory groups as consumers? Currently I am able to search only users. As I have to open up the community to larger audience, it's easy to add groups instead of adding every user at a time. Do we need to add anything in the ldap search query in Administration page?

Thanks in Advance,

As Peter noted, make sure that Custom User Information LDAP adapter (Configure button from the  Administrator->Configuration page) has the proper "LDAP group base search" urn, and filter.

This adapter supports static group with a default filter as following:  (&(cn=%v)(|(objectclass=groupOfNames)(objectclass=groupOfUniqueNames))) ... the search (%v) will be on the group's name.

In RAM, this is very easy to do (assuming you setup LDAP during Server Setup configuration).
On the Users tab for a specific community, select New User Group... part way down the page, select the Create link next to "Public Group:". Search for the LDAP group name in the search and select it. This will bind the LDAP group to the RAM user group you are creating. Assign the roles and click OK. This will assign the same roles to all the people in that group.
