Microfocus NetIQ Directory Integration
has anybody integrated Auth Manager with Microfocus NetIQ as a repository source? I am involved in a project in which the customer is using this LDAP directory, but it does not work,
Using OpenLDAP as directory type, test connection is successful, however each time we tried to save the configuration under "Map tab" it gives the following Warning:
The directory you specified in Directory URL is not the type of directory you specified in Type. Return to the Connections tab and select the correct type of directory.
Tried with other directory types as well (AD, Oracle, Sun),same error.
NetIQ is an LDAP compatible directory, but LDAP is not an option for Auth Manager.
RSA Authentication Manager supported identity sources are listed below - Microfocus NetIQ Directory is not yet supported. Strongly suggest integrate one among the following supported directory sources.
Ensure you select appropriate Identity Source type and set the appropriate Unique Identifier default values.
Identity Source Properties
after some testing, this integration finally worked. The directory type OpenLDAP works for NetIQ, although there is a warning when the added Identity Source configuration is saved in the Operations Console.
The only difference with OpenLDAP is that the entryUUID attribute is not present in our NetIQ version, so you need to select a different one for the "unique identifier". In our case the gid worked, but this can be different in other implementations. This is configured in the mappings tab.
