My end goal is to get some of my Active Directory Groups available in TeamCity.
So I looked at the docs for that, and it includes changes to `ldap-config.properties`. I currently do not have such a file. I only have a `ldap-config.properties.dist` file (ie the example file). Looking at my Administration->Authentication settings, I do not have an `LDAP` configuration setup.
Looking at the docs, it looks as if I will need to add in LDAP Authentication to get access to my Active Directory Groups. Here are my questions with that:
- Am I going to loose my current user permissions and setup if I add in LDAP? (We have been using TeamCity for many years, and I do not want to have to try to re-assign all the users their various permissions.
- Will the users merge? (Meaning will TeamCity see user John Doe from Microsoft Windows Domain Authentication and John.Doe@mydomain.net from LDAP and realize that they are the same user.)
- Related to the above, will group membership for LDAP groups be connected to the users that already exist?
Basically, it looks as if there will be two different ways that users can be authenticated. I am worried that they will be seen as two different users. And then the group role permissions will not work (because the users are split).
How will adding/switching to LDAP work for my existing users?
