[Active Directory] Cannot browse the whole directory to authenticate users?


#1

Hello Gurock community,

Today, we’re using the “auth.php” plugin to provide authentication to our TestRail users and it works well.

We’re using the following “AUTH DN” :

define(‘AUTH_DN’, ‘OU=OUR_USERS_OU,DC=OUR_AD_DOMAIN,DC=org’);

But now, we would like to include not only the users from the above “OUR_USERS_OU”, but people from the whole directory. Thus, we’ve tried this:

define(‘AUTH_DN’, ‘DC=OUR_AD_DOMAIN,DC=org’);

… but this completely breaks the authentication, and even people from the “OUR_USERS_OU” OU can’t log in anymore.

Is it mandatory to set an Organization Unit under the domain tree when we set the AUTH_DN ?
Or, can we enable search in multiple OUs under the root of the directory tree hierarchy ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards,

Bernard
