of whether user authentications for a repository are performed by TestArchitect or LDAP, it is the TestArchitect user name that determines which permissions
are granted to each user. Hence, to use LDAP, it is necessary to associate the LDAP user
name of each user of the repository with his/her TestArchitect user name.
To map repository user names to LDAP user names other than your own, you must be a
member of the administrator
group for that repository.
Note: This is not an essential administrative task. Once a
repository is configured for LDAP authentication mode, any
repository user attempting to log in will be queried for his/her LDAP user name, if
that account has not already been configured for LDAP. In either case, the link need
only be established once, after which LDAP authentication takes place
To map a given TestArchitect repository user name to
an LDAP user name, perform the following:
Invoke the Manage
Users dialog box. (In the TestArchitect explorer tree, right-click the
Administration node and then select Manage
From the Users panel, select a TestArchitect user name.
Restriction: The administrator account of a
repository may not be mapped to an LDAP user name, as
administrator is a super administrator and a built-in
account of TestArchitect.
Select the Profile tab.
In the LDAP User Name box, enter the LDAP user name that
is to be mapped to the repository user name.
- Within a repository, only one TestArchitect user name may be
mapped to a given LDAP user name. (Note, however, that this does not
restrict you from concurrently allowing a different TestArchitect user name of a
different repository to be mapped to the same LDAP user name.)
- In order to modify the repository's current LDAP
connection configuration at this point, click the LDAP
Configuration button. You will be directed to the
Click Apply to perform the mapping.
Click OK to close the dialog box.
