Configure Directory Service

You can set up LDAP authentication and configure an LDAP connection.

The ability to view or edit certain settings is determined by a user's privileges. All necessary privileges are included in the Administrator role by default. You must belong to the System Administrators group to use this feature.

  1. Open the Workstation window.
  2. In the Navigation pane, click Environments.

  3. Right-click an environment and choose Directory Service > Configure Directory Service.
  4. Under Test Connection, enter your username, without the Bind DN, and password to verify the connection to the LDAP server.
  5. Click Test Connection.
  6. Click Save.

Once you have configured your LDAP authentication, you can map attributes from your LDAP account in MicroStrategy. See Use Attribute Mapping to Restrict the Data Users Can View for more information.
