LDAP and New User Control

Hello,

I have a question on the LDAP functionality.

When I activate "Allow LDAP to create new accounts automatically", anyone (given that they are in our Active Directory) can create an account by just logging in. This is despite the fact that "New User Control" is set to "Only admins can create accounts".

Can I use LDAP, and still only allow the administrator to add users?

Yes, you can.  If you do not want any valid LDAP user to be able to create an account, but still use LDAP authentication, hen you want to add a user, you can do it like this:

1. Turn off LDAP authentication
2. Create a new user
3. Go into the database and set the sLDAPUid to match the user's LDAP account
4. Turn on LDAP authentication

Another option which you can do entirely through FogBugz.

1. Turn off LDAP
2. Create the new user in FogBugz and make sure the Full Name and the Email match exactly to the LDAP server's information
3. Turn on LDAP authentication
4. The new user should be able to log on if the name and email match exactly.

Hi Michael,

I'm confused, what does the "Allow LDAP to create new accounts automatically" check box on the LDAP tab of the Site page do then?

I thought it controlled the very thing Tobias was looking for, am I wrong?

Allow LDAP to create new accounts means that a user who is in the LDAP directory can login to FogBugz and an account will be created for them.
