The Life and Times of a Dev Yes, we're really that weird

In a previous post, I wrote about how to get LDAP authentication working in Collabnet.

By default, all LDAP users are put into the Users role on the server.  For most purposes, this is just fine, and I don’t have a way to change this.  The documentation gives hints that you can add them to other roles, but for now, I don’t have the need.

However, adding permissions to different repositories is a different question.

To add them, go to the repositories list, select Access Rules and then you can enter in their username, as it sits in Active Directory to the lists for the repositories or for the predefined groups that you have created.  To my knowledge, you cannot use the Active Directory groups in collabnet, which is a big problem.  Needing to micromanage users really limits the usefulness of the LDAP integration.

You can use the AD-groups in Collabnet-Subversion, just set the LDAP Filter to something like "(&(&(memberOf=CN=Yourgroupnamehere,CN=Users,DC=localdom,DC=local)))"

Oh, you're right, you can't use your ldap groups in the access rules in collabnet svn.
Thought you meant using ldap-groups generally.
