In a clustered environment roles defined and mapped for LDAP authentication configured in Deployer (shcluster/apps) authentication.conf & authorize.conf , but the role mapping is done in the conf files , but the same is not showing up in the Search Head to the LDAP group ?
There is no need of a deployer.
On any one Search head of the cluster, you can define an LDAP strategy with 1-2 AD groups and do role mapping.
Wait for some time, the same settings are pushed to the other search heads of the cluster.
It worked for me.
I have a 5 Search Head cluster and am pushing LDAP authentication.conf & authorize.conf from the deployer to the SH's . The changes are getting pushed to the SH's , and are showing up in the SH's authorize.conf & authenticate.conf , but the mapping of the roles are not showing up in the SH's UI and the roles are not mapped.
