Goal

Tools and Framework (Workbench) LDAP integration allows you to assign roles and permissions across an entire LDAP group rather than configuring Workbench users individually.

You would like to setup LDAP authentication but the users using Tools and Framework are located in 2 different user paths in your LDAP. Eg.: "OU=Accounts,DC=domain,DC=com" and "CN=Users,DC=domain,DC=com".

How to configure Tools and Framework (Workbench) LDAP integration to consider both paths, such that the login module looks at 1st LDAP user-location and if user is not found there, it looks at the 2nd LDAP user-location.
