Ldap Security Roles

Hi guys , lately i’ve been using the LDAP connection feature and i’m facing some problems
so first of all i’ve managed to connect to the ldap server and login to kibana using my credentials and everything is okay , my problem is that every user that logs in using LDAP is assigned directly to the own_index predefined role .
so any idea how to change this ? i created another role but i don’t konw how to map the ldap users to this role ? any help or guidance would be appreciated .
thanks a lot
PS : i’m using the latest version of SG 49.0.0 with kibana 7.10.2

Hi. You can map Search Guard roles to LDAP groups, for example

    - 'cn=ldaprole,ou=groups,dc=example,dc=com'

Or configure it via Kibana.

Also, you can map the users directly to the SG roles

    - user1
    - user2
    - ...

if in the authc ldap config you have

        # Filter to search for users (currently in the whole subtree beneath userbase)
        # {0} is substituted with the username
        usersearch: '(sAMAccountName={0})'
        # Use this attribute from the user as username (if not set then DN is used)
        username_attribute: sAMAccountName

Hi @srgbnd i’ve managed to map the users directly to the SG roles , bu i’ve changed the

username_attribute: sAMAccountName


username_attribute: cn

so i can display the user name when the user is logged in kibana , but my problem is that i want the id behind that username so i can use that in use the variable ${user.name} in the DLS query , so far i’ve managed to do that using the username but not the id
Any idea how it should be done ?

Thanks in advance

Hi @HeiDri
Show me what attributes are available. You can execute the following command to see the available user attributes.

curl -k -u ldapuser:ldapuserpassword -X GET https://localhost:9200/_searchguard/authinfo?pretty

Also, post the DLS query you want to use.
