How do I create user labels limited by Active Directory roles?

06/26/2015 2522 views
For software installations, I'd like to be able to create a user label specifically for users with a "faculty" role in Active Directory. I've tried building labels for users limited by OU, but I still ended up pulling in all AD users - how do I narrow this down? and can I target users by role?

When I create an LDAP label and test it, I get the correct number of entries found, but, for example, applying the label to a software installation in the User Console Library does not limit access. Am I missing a step?

You need to make sure you have the (SAMAccountname=KBOX_USER_NAME) field in your ldap search.

Here's a sample of mine.... (keep in mind that for me, I use the email as the username which is why I have mail=KBOX...)


This pulls all users from the domain that have an office name in the LDAP.
