Using Nested Groups in the LDAP Directory Service

Using Nested Groups in the LDAP Directory Service

An LDAP security domain can contain nested LDAP groups. The Service Manager can import nested groups that are created in the following manner:
  • Create the groups under the same organizational units (OU).
  • Set the relationship between the groups.
For example, you want to create a nested grouping where GroupB is a member of GroupA and GroupD is a member of GroupC.
  1. Create GroupA, GroupB, GroupC, and GroupD within the same OU.
  2. Edit GroupA, and add GroupB as a member.
  3. Edit GroupC, and add GroupD as a member.
You cannot import nested LDAP groups into an LDAP security domain that are created in a different way.
