Does P6 LDAP Connection Setting Support an AD Group Path as the Base Directory Node?

(Doc ID 2170270.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 15, 2016

Applies to:

Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management - Version 8.2.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

When configuring LDAP Connection Settings in the P6 Administrator, some users specify the value of Base Directory Node with a LDAP group path. This will cause the failure of LDAP authentication.

This document confirms the LDAP group path is not a valid Base Directory Node value, and demonstrates this incorrect user case in detail.
