LDAP auth and user priviledges, rights, groups
I recently installed redmine and made it authenticate users over our AD. It's really cool, big thanks to the dev team.
I want to ask a question that is somewhat obscure in the guide. We want to accomplish the following scenario: "Some Active Directory users, that are member of the "Phd" group (memberof atrribute in AD), should be able to log into Redmine and have the "manager" role given to them automatically". That should happen without the admin user having to assign roles to each one of them manually.
Is it possible to map LDAP groups (or, more specifically, the results of a search filter) to certain roles in redmine?
Thank you in advance,
I'd be curious to know this as well.
I would also be interested in being able to associate users with permissions - based on their LDAP group.
I am working on something that would probably help you guys :
What do you think? All I need to do now is work out how to add a user to a group - I have written all the other basic code.
