Basic password authentication and database ACLs
- From the Sametime server home page, click Administer the Server to open the Sametime Administration Tool.
- If you are using a Domino® Directory with the Sametime server, select Domino Directory - Domino. If you are using an LDAP directory with the Sametime server, select LDAP Directory.
- Select Access Control.
- Select a database from the list.
- Click Access. The database ACL displays.
- Click Add.
- In the dialog box, type the exact user name from a Person document or the group name from a Group document. Click OK.
When entering a user name for a user with a Person document in the Domino
Directory on the Sametime
server, type the name exactly as it appears in the topmost entry of the "User name" field in the user's Person document.
When entering the names of users or groups registered in an LDAP directory in a Sametime
database ACL, use the fully qualified Distinguished Name, but use forward slashes (/) as delimiters instead of commas. For example, if the Distinguished Name for the user in the LDAP directory is:
- uid = Joe Waters, ou=West, o=Example
enter the name in the Sametime
database ACL as follows:
- uid = Joe Waters/ou=West/o=Example
You can also use asterisks for wildcards when entering names from an LDAP directory or a Domino
Directory in an ACL. For example, entering */ou=West/o=Example
is equivalent to entering all users in the ou=West/o=Example branch of the directory to the ACL.
It is possible to enter entities other than user and group names in an ACL. For more information about the types of entries that can exist in an ACL, see User type - ACL settings
- Click the name entered in the previous step so that the name is selected (highlighted).
- In the User Type box, select the type of user (Unspecified, Person, Server, Person Group, Server Group, or Mixed Group). For more information, see User type - ACL settings.
- In the Access Box, assign an access level for the user (Manager, Designer, Editor, Author, Reader, Depositor, or No Access). For more information, see Access level - ACL settings.
- Edit the privileges if necessary. For more information, see Privileges - ACL settings.
- Click Submit.
