Figure 1: Administration of LDAP users in ReqSuite® RM

For the management of LDAP users, the following administration functions are available as per Figure 1:

  • Switch LDAP mode: Click the “Manage Users via LDAP” slider button on the right side of the table title bar. A dialog window opens in which you can confirm (by clicking on “yes” button) or discard (by clicking on “No” button) the change of the user mode depending on the current state:
    • LDAP mode is turned off: LDAP mode will be enabled, i.e., all local users remain unchanged while all LDAP users that are already stored in the LDAP directory will be managed by that directory service from now on and, thus, loose their local local ReqSuite® RM-specific passwords.
    • LDAP mode is turned on: LDAP mode will be disabled, i.e., all LDAP users managed by the LDAP directory so far will be disconnected from that LDAP directory and will receive a local ReqSuite® RM-specific password each.
  • Map LDAP users: Click the “user icon”  button on the right side of the table title bar. Another site titled “LDAP Connection: Map Users” will open showing two tabular lists of users (see Figure 2). Table “Users” lists all users stored available in the LDAP directory which can be mapped as local ReqSuite® RM users.  Table “Mapped Users” lists all users stored in the LDAP directory which have already been mapped as local ReqSuite® RM users. Mark any table row by clicking any cell and use buttons “left arrow” and “right arrow” in-between those tables to map an LDAP user as local ReqSuite® RM user and to unmap an LDAP user from a local ReqSuite® RM user, respectively.
  • Refresh LDAP user mapping: Click the “sync icon” button on the right side of the table title bar in order to synchronize the current LDAP user mapping with the connected LDAP directory.

Note: To make use of the LDAP user mode feature, an interface connection to an existing LDAP directory service (either “ActiveDirectory” or “OpenLDAP” as tool type) has to be defined for the associated tenant.
