Re: When will LDAP groups be supported in Fortify SSC On Premise?

Make sure you are on the latest version of SSC as some enhancements have been made to LDAP integration.

Can you provide some additional information on what problems/challenges you are experiencing with LDAP Groups? SSC does provide support as mentioned in the documentation:

Active Directory/LDAP accounts associated with standard corporate authentication (Active Directory/LDAP integration supports user assignment by group or organizational unit)

Development is aware of some specific issues, but we want to ensure we capture what you all are experiencing via a support incident.

Re: When will LDAP groups be supported in Fortify SSC On Premise?

Hi my apologies for the late reply.

As of a recent support ticket that I have filed on version 19 of SSC, it was instructed by the tech support to assign role of “Administrator” to the LDAP group to allow the group users to login and make the LDAP groups work.

However, in our organization, we require a certain LDAP group to be entirely added to an application. However, within these groups, there would be a few users with extra roles and privileges.
The currently implementation we see now does not allow us to give fine grain roles and permissions to a per project level but to system wide level.
I understand this is a unique use case as not all organizations require such specificity. However in our organization code bases are sensitive across teams and within each team roles and responsibilities are strictly audited.

With thanks,
Poh Peng

@pohpengwang thank you for following up. Can you PM me your ticket number so I can get a better understanding of what you are looking for as well as the challenges encountered?

At the very least, I would like to make sure this use case has been presented to development as an enhancement request.
