Description Jared Deubel 2016-07-11 19:40:44 UTC
Description of problem:
In the documentation that follows it specifies a place called 'ldap group'
There is no field called that or way to do that:
4.2.12. Using Pre-existing LDAP Groups to Assign Account Roles

To use pre-existing LDAP groups to assign account roles:

   1. Navigate to Settings → Configuration.
   2. Click on the *Access Control* accordion, then click *Groups*.
   3. Click [image: 1847] (*Configuration*), and [image: plus green] (*Add
   a new Group*) to create a group.
   4. Enter a description for the group in the *Description* field.

   There are two ways to specify the group to use:

      Type in the *cn* for the group in *LDAP Group*. This group must be in
      the LDAP directory source you specified under Operations-Server.

Assigning to Dayle for review.

Dayle - looks like this is related to your current work. Do you know if this may be resolved by the content you have been working on?

Hi Andrew -- this is indeed part of the LDAP instructions I've been working on for other bugs, and I actually had the very same question when testing. I will investigate.

Comment 4 Dayle Parker 2016-09-08 07:06:44 UTC
Hi Jared,

Thanks for raising this bug. I've actually been working on an overhaul of the CloudForms LDAP config content for, and this part of the instructions will be updated as part of that bug.

I believe that the text listing "LDAP directory source you specified under Operations-Server" was probably from an older version of CloudForms.
