LDAP Authentication Configuration

Here are the steps for configuring LDAP authentication with Caché:

First, on the LDAP Server extend the database schema. Add user attributes to contain Caché user properties. See the image below for the list of user attributes that Caché retrieves from the LDAP server.

Second, complete the following steps in Caché:

  1. Enable LDAP Authentication for the system. Click Allow LDAP Authentication on the Authentications Options/CSP Session Options page (click [Home] > [System Administration] > {Security] > [System Security] > [Authentication/CSP Session Options]) of the portal.

    The properties on the top half of the page specify the LDAP access credentials for Caché. The properties on the bottom half of the page specify the LDAP user attributes that Caché accesses. These attributes represent the Caché user account properties.

  3. Enable LDAP Authentication for the relevant services. For services associated with non CSP (or Zen) connection tools click the name of the application on the Services page (click [Home] > [System Administration] > [Security] > [Services]) of the portal. Then click the relevant service. For CSP or Zen click the name of the application on the Web Applications page (click [Home] > [System Administration] > [Security] > [Web Applications]) of the portal.


For more detailed configuration information, including detailed discussion of each of the fields on the LDAP Options page, read the Configuring Caché to Use an LDAP Server section of Using LDAP in the Caché Security Administration Guide.
