Creating LDAP Users in CxSAST

Notice

For SAST Versions 9.0 and above, refer to Settings Tab - LDAP Server Settings (v2.0 and up).

If the LDAP Role Authorization method is used, LDAP users are defined according to their predefined attributes in the LDAP and this step is not required.

If the Manual Role Authorization method is used (default), LDAP users are defined upon logging in according to the default settings in CxSAST, either a scanner or reviewer. If required, you can create LDAP users using User Management.

To create an LDAP user:

1. Go to Users & Teams > Organization > User Management.

2. Once the User Management window is displayed, click <Create New User>.

3. Once the Create User window is displayed, select Directory User. The Directory User dialog window is displayed.

4. Select a Directory from the drop-down list, for example ActiveDirectoryLdap and click <Find>. All the available Directory Users associated with the selected directory are displayed.

Warning

If there are no LDAP Directory Users displayed in the Directory User dialog window, check your LDAP authentication settings. Refer to Configuring LDAP Authentication for further information.

5. Select a Directory User from the list and click <OK>. Directory User information is automatically added by the User Directory.
