Create group with LDAP custom attribute

UTM 9 is easier to create a group based on LDAP attribute. In XG via Configure> Authentication> Group> Add Members we did not find it.

  • Hi and Welcome to Sophos Community,

    I believe that you have taken a look into the KBA referred below:

    https://community.sophos.com/kb/en-us/123163

    To import groups and member on the XG the user has to authenticate initially which was create a User object with the Group association in the XG> User list. Alongside, you can also raise it as an idea to change the UI functionality here.

    Thanks

    Hello sachingurung, 

     

    I'm sorry, but an "idea" how is connect XG to MS Active Directory for me (with all respect to XG developers ) compared to the implementation in the UTM v9.x seems utterly stupid and useless. 

    To this day I did not understand what the most important benefit has the XG connection to a MS Active Directory compared to the implementation in the UTM v9.x.

     

    Please can someone describe for me the major advantage, why is the XG connection to a MS Active Directory implemented by this way ? 

    I really do not see any advantage ....

    alda

    Hi Sachingurung,

     

    I think that the basic features of the grouping in ldap, for example if you have a lot of groups, UTM 9 is very powerful in this case

    I post a new idea in ideas.sophos.com/.../18141112-create-group-with-ldap-custom-attribute

    Hopefully soon be released in XG 17
