OUD - Can you use an LDAP Group with the "Allowed-bind-dn" attribute for a Network Group? (Doc ID 2571563.1)

Last updated on JULY 16, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Unified Directory - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The following enquiry is described:

 - Need a way to add a LDAP group to the "allowed-bind-dn" parameter with network groups.


 - How to assign an LDAP group of people under 1 network-group in the configuration?

Solution Options Attempted (which do not satisfy the requirements)

Using the * (i.e. wildcard) as peoples names are too random, but certain people need to be directed to use a different workflow.

In addition, most users (unless that user is a Directory administrator) do not have access to the "dsconfig" command to modify it, and add the wildcard (i.e. the * value)).
