Security

mapping users to role

New Member

Hi,
I have created LDAP configuration in our SPLUNK deployment.

Version 6.0

DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE!

Please make all changes to files in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local.

To make changes, copy the section/stanza you want to change from $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/default

into ../local and edit there.

This file configures authentication.

[authentication]
authType = LDAP
authSettings = SHC

Note: the caching specified in this stanza only applies to scripted authentication.

If you are using scripted authentication, you can override these cache timing values in

your $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/authentication.conf

[SHC]
host = XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
port = 389
SSLEnabled = 0

bindDN = anonymous

User Configurations

realNameAttribute = cn
userBaseDN = ou=people,o=intra,dc=sears,dc=com
userBaseFilter = (objectclass=*)
userNameAttribute = uid

Group Configurations

groupBaseDN = ou=people,o=intra,dc=sears,dc=com
groupBaseFilter = (objectclass=*)
groupMappingAttribute = uid
groupMemberAttribute = uid
groupNameAttribute = uid

[roleMap_SHC]
admin = lbirnba;pbussie;rsen0;vjaiswa

All the users have got added. But they they are not able to login(except for the admin users). I think I need to assign each user to a role before they can login. I am thinking of assigning the "user" role to all users. How do I achieve that without using groups. We do not use groups in our LDAP.

We are using LDAP group and then map Splunk role with each LDAP group. Role is assigned to LDAP users by adding them to the appropriate LDAP group.

In your case without using LDAP groups, if admin role users can log in then by the same token, you can assign users to Splunk role 'user' as follow under 'roleMap_SHC' stanza:

[roleMap_SHC]
admin = lbirnba;pbussie;rsen0;vjaiswa
user = ;;

The only way I can think of is to use scripted authentication.

The only problem is that I cannot add all users like that. Is there any way to set all users to have "user" role by default.Something like --

user = ALL
or
user = *

I tried both but not working.
