I need to use Zimbra to authenticate users by group through its LDAP interface. For example, external services like Apache should be able (through mod_authz_ldap) to restrict access to URLs by specifying a group name, instead of a list of individual Zimbra users. Is that possible?
Ideally, Distribution lists would be mirrored in LDAP as a gropuOfUniqueNames so that apache and other external software services could secure their resources based on Zimbra's only concept of groups. I really don't want to create and maintiain separate access lists of individual usernames for each external resource.
Is there any way to do this?
P.S. I asked about this already on this forum, but got no response. See here.
