We're facing issues autheticating users over LDAPS. I can connect to the LDAPS server and find users. After adding licenses to the users I try to log in. When I try to log in, I get "Login failed". Attaching my DSP settings.
AFAIK to use LDAP for authentication requires you write a component that controls how the user provides their credentials and then how those credentials are validated against an LDAP directory for authentication. Usually this involves you writing a custom login page and the code/configuration to call out to the LDAP directory with the credentials the user provides.
You may also be wishing to use LDAP for you authorization to control which dashboard the authenticated user has access to. Sebastian Fatoux' post on this thread includes a link to a Qlik Tips page that has some really useful information for LDAP authorization.
As you can see from your screenshot DMS falls under the Authorization setting. Set this and QlikView will maintain a list of which users/groups can access ?.qvw in the ?.qvw.meta file rather tha ncontrolling access to the .qvw file using windows file permissions.
NTLM refers to the authenticated (usually by Active Directory) identity of the user being passed by their browser to the QlikView Server. But you are wanting to authenticate via LDAP so this is probably not relevant.
Back to your original post when you say When I try to log in, I get "Login failed" which of the following do you mean
Thank you for an excellent answer. Since we want to authenticate via LDAP I understand NTLM is not relevant.
As to your question I mean that my problem is number 2. The Directory service connctor is able to connect to LDAP and I do find users in the LDAP catalogue. But when I as a user try to authenticate I'm not able to do this and get "Login Failed".
