LDAP authentication for AD group

Post by jchristensen » Tue Jun 28, 2016 4:12 pm

Is there a way to setup LDAP authentication for an AD group? We have Active Directory groups already setup for database access and would like to use these to manage Vertica access. I see lots of documentation for how to setup individual users but nothing that's group based. How do I set this up?

Vertica 7.2 introduced a feature named LDAP Link Service.
LDAP Link enables synchronization between the LDAP and Vertica servers. This eliminates the need for you to manage two sets of users and groups, one on the LDAP server and another on the Vertica server. With LDAP synchronization, the Vertica server becomes a replication database for the LDAP server.
Check out the documentation here:
