1.Open the configuration file "qpr.ini" for editing - see Appendix A for details about where the file is located.
2.Add a new section to the ini file. Give it a name which describes the new setup that you are creating. The format is [UMS LDAP <name of your settings>], for example "[UMS LDAP My Settings]".
3.Copy the settings from some other existing setup sections.
4.Edit the copied settings so that they correspond to the requirements of your LDAP system. After editing the new section should contain these items:

[UMS LDAP My Settings]

DistinguishedNameAttribute=dn

CommonNameAttribute=<The full name attribute of your LDAP directory>

EmailAttribute=<The email attribute of your LDAP directory>

MemberAttribute=<The member attribute of your LDAP directory>

DescriptionAttribute=<The description attribute of your LDAP directory>

PersonFullNameAttribute=<The full name attribute of the user; refers to CommonNameAttribute if not defined explicitly>

FilterForSearchingGroups=<The search filter for retrieving groups>

FilterForSearchingPersons=<The search filter for retrieving persons>

UIDAttributeName=<The login name attribute of your LDAP directory>

 

5.In the UMS LDAP Setting Groups section, add a new line, which identifies your new setup, after the last item of the section:

[UMS LDAP Setting Groups]

1=Standard

2=Active Directory

3=My Settings

 

NOTE Add the name of your new setup under "UMS LDAP Setting Groups" section in ini-file. Add it as the last item of the section. Do not insert the name into some other location. The name of the new setup must be exactly the same as the name of the settings section. Use consecutive numbering, when entering the index for the new setup name. If the previous index was 2 (as in the example), then set the index to 3, when adding the new setup name.

 

6.Save the ini-file. If the QPR Configuration Manager utility is open, restart it. The new settings group is now added and should be selectable in the configuration utility.
