Managing users : Configuring user management : Using the LDAP realm

Using the LDAP realm

The LDAP Realm configuration information is stored in the umacl.conf file. Under normal circumstances, Business Process Server supplies the correct settings in the umacl.conf configuration files. However, you might need to modify these files if you choose to use the LDAP Realm following Business Process Server installation.
Note: If you choose the LDAP Realm, then the option of adding and removing users and groups, and adding and removing users within a group does not appear in the interface.
You can use the usermgr.additionalstorage parameter in umacl.conf. This parameter specifies where the OEBPS specific information for user manager is stored. This parameter applies to NIS and LDAP only. For example, you can store the first name and last name of a user, or the language setting for an LDAP realm; or portal level configurations that are granted to users and groups. Although the parameter provides a choice between database and file options, we recommend you use the default value, database, rather than the file option. If you choose database, then the user details are stored in Business Process Server database. If you choose file option, then the user details are stored in usermgr.additionalstorage parameter in umacl.conf.
You can specify this parameter by editing the umacl.conf file. This file is available in OEBPS_HOME\conf folder.
