Hi

Can MRE support, LDAP authentication?
If so, how?


Thanks

Viswakanth,

The answer is simply: Yes, but how to do this depends on the WF release you are using. In 5.2.3 the LDAP authentication option is available out-of-the-box, and you can configure it using "WebFOCUS LDAP Configuration" wizard (I never tried to use this option). In all of the releases, there is a possibility to write "Custom Security Exit" which allows to authenticate users by any external system, including LDAP. Security exits are described in the "WebFOCUS Security and Administration" manual.

Hope this helps
Grzegorz
