Use this guide along with the Data Tab Configuration guide to configure a Novell eDirectory-integrated SecureAuth IdP realm. 


1. Have an on-premises Novell eDirectory data store

2. A service account with read access (and optional write access) for SecureAuth IdP

Novell eDirectory Configuration Steps


1. In the Membership Connection Settings, select Novell eDirectory from the Data Store dropdown

2. Provide the Domain of the data store

3. Click Generate LDAP Connection String, and the Connection String will auto-populate

4. Select True from the Anonymous LookUp dropdown if the directory can be searched without supplying the username

Select False if the username must be supplied to search the directory

5. Provide the SecureAuth IdP Service Account username in the Distinguished Name (DN) format, e.g. cn=svc-account,DC=directory,DC=domain

6. Provide the Password that is associated with the Service Account

7. Select the type of Connection Mode to be used from the dropdown

8. Provide the Search Attribute to be used to search for the user's account in the directory, e.g. uid

9. Click Generate Search Filter, and the searchFilter will auto-populate

The value that equals %v is what the end-user will provide on the login page, so if it is different from the Search Attribute, change it here

For example, if the Search Attribute is uid, but end-users will log in with their email addresses (field=mail), the searchFilter would be (&(mail=%v)(objectclass=inetOrgPerson))

10. Select Search from the Validate User Type dropdown if SecureAuth IdP is to use the search function to find a username and password

Select Bind if SecureAuth IdP is to make a direct call to the directory to validate the username and password

11. Select Allow Access from the User Group Check Type to create a list of allowed user groups; select Deny Access to create a list of denied user groups

12. Provide the allowed or denied User Groups based on the selection in step 11, e.g. Admins

Leave this field blank if there is no access restriction

13. Check Include Nested Groups if the subgroups from the listed User Groups are to be allowed or denied access as well

14. Provide the Groups Field that contains users' groups, e.g. memberOf

15. Click Test Connection to ensure that the integration is successful
