LDAP with WebSphere Application Server V8.x

LDAP authentication is based on the federated repository configuration. ACL management configuration of the Application Center uses the Virtual Member Manager API.

You must configure LDAP based on the federated repository configuration. The stand-alone LDAP registry is not supported.

Several different repositories, LDAP and non-LDAP, can be configured in the federated repository.

For information about configuring federated repositories, see the WebSphere® Application Server V8.0 user documentation or the WebSphere Application Server V8.5 user documentation, depending on your version.


Configuration of the Application Center for ACL management with LDAP

Some configuration details of ACL management are specific to the Application Center, because it uses the Virtual Member Manager (VMM) API.

The Application Center refers to these VMM attributes for users:

For groups, the Application Center refers only to the VMM attribute cn.

If VMM attributes are not identical in LDAP, we must map the VMM attributes to the corresponding LDAP attributes.
