Creating LDAP Groups

If your organization was created before Tuesday, April 11 2017, see Configuring Tags for LDAP Group Presentation

When Groups of Uses are bound to the JumpCloud LDAP Directory, LDAP groups will be created.
 
Note: Groups will not be created in LDAP unless the group contains individual members.
 
  1. Create a new group. The group Name will correspond to its cn in groupOfNames.
      - (Optional) Create a Linux group name and GID, this will correspond with the cn in the posixGroup objectClass. NOTE: Some LDAP enabled resources require this option for LDAP group presentation.
      - (Optional) Enable Samba Authentication. See Enabling Samba with JumpCloud LDAP for more information.


     
  2. On the Users tab, select the users to belong to this group


     
  3. On the Directories tab, bind the group to LDAP by selecting JumpCloud LDAP from the list


     
Save your configuration. A group configured as above will yield the following within LDAP:

The Name of the group will defined in the groupOfNames objectClass:
# extended LDIF
#
# LDAPv3
# base  with scope subtree
# filter: (&(objectClass=groupOfNames)(cn=LDAP Fileserver))
# requesting: ALL
#

# LDAP Fileserver, Users, 56f19b119508329e48e68647, jumpcloud.com
dn: cn=LDAP Fileserver,ou=Users,o=56f19b119508329e48e68647,dc=jumpcloud,dc=com
cn: LDAP Fileserver
ou: LDAP Fileserver
objectClass: top
objectClass: groupOfNames
description: tagGroup
member: uid=cfroome,ou=Users,o=56f19b119508329e48e68647,dc=jumpcloud,dc=com
member: uid=sroche,ou=Users,o=56f19b119508329e48e68647,dc=jumpcloud,dc=com
member: uid=sprefontaine,ou=Users,o=56f19b119508329e48e68647,dc=jumpcloud,dc=c
 om
member: uid=jvoigt,ou=Users,o=56f19b119508329e48e68647,dc=jumpcloud,dc=com
member: uid=nquintana,ou=Users,o=56f19b119508329e48e68647,dc=jumpcloud,dc=com
Optionally, if 'Create Linux group for this user group' you must provide a name different from the above so it is unique for the posixGroup, also specify the desired GID. This will become a group defined in the posixGroup ObjectClass:
# extended LDIF
#
# LDAPv3
# base  with scope subtree
# filter: (&(objectClass=posixGroup)(cn=ldapfileserver))
# requesting: ALL
#

# ldapfileserver, Users, 56f19b119508329e48e68647, jumpcloud.com
dn: cn=ldapfileserver,ou=Users,o=56f19b119508329e48e68647,dc=jumpcloud,dc=com
objectClass: top
objectClass: posixGroup
description: tagGroup
gidNumber: 7001
cn: ldapfileserver
memberUid: cfroome
memberUid: sroche
memberUid: sprefontaine
memberUid: jvoigt
memberUid: nquintana
