- What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?
Version 10.1.4 (commit: a676a96d91, branch: HEAD)
- What are you trying to achieve?
We’re using LDAP for authentication for our users to be able to login. Ultimately, I would like to create a dashboard that a user can log in to and have some information displayed using their logged-in username as a variable to display things like quotas and usage. I’m currently doing this and it works correctly.
The piece I’m stumped on - I want to use their LDAP groups as a variable for the dashboard.
So, if user1 is in the groups: group1, group2, group3
A dashboard variable will be set up automatically for group1,group2,group3
And then I’ll have a row that repeats for each variable in the group variable.
- How are you trying to achieve it?
Our LDAP server doesn’t use the memberOf attribute but I found the lines
## Group search filter, to retrieve the groups of which the user is a member (only set if memberOf attribute is not available) group_search_filter = "(&(objectClass=posixGroup)(memberUid=%s))" ## An array of the base DNs to search through for groups. Typically uses ou=groups group_search_base_dns = ["ou=groups,dc=grafana,dc=org"] ## the %s in the search filter will be replaced with the attribute defined below group_search_filter_user_attribute = "uid"
I’ve included that in the ldap.toml and restarted the server. My current version of grafana isn’t showing me anything on the admin panel related to LDAP other than a little “LDAP” next to the users entry under the Origin column in the Users Table. Documentation suggests that there should be a “LDAP” section I should be able to go to and debug?
- What happened?
I am able to connect as expected with an ldap user. I am not however seeing where the group information is listed, or a way to debug it - so I’m not sure how to proceed exactly.
