Create LDAP user readonly

Postby tuandungtb89 » Thu Jul 06, 2017 5:47 am

I have to share LDAP root user (uid=zimbra,cn=admins,cn=zimbra) for other guys who using that account to connect to LDAP server for authentication.
But this account can create/modify/remove all information in LDAP tree, so I want create other LDAP which only read account infomation for authentication from other applications.
I'm using Zimbra Open Source v8.7.4
Pls help me.

you can not a read only user in Zimbra LDAP unless you know what you're doing. You should consider using Zimbra Postfix user who has less power.
