Leave the other field blank for now.
In Work Group Manager create a test user with:
1) Only one short name. If you have multiple short names like "bill," try using "bill.list"' when testing the front door at Joomla.
2) The user MUST HAVE an email address in WGM, accounts, user info. Joomla needs to get back at least one email otherwise the authentication will fail.
If you get that to work, you can reduce the search time by limiting the ldap search.
Authorization method: Bind Directly as User.
User's DN: uid=[username],cn=users,dc=myserver,dc=mycompany,dc=com
If you want new users to be created in the ldap server, you will need to authorize to the LDAP directory with:
Connect username and password. (I did not try this).
There is a way to map LDAP groups to the groups used by Joomla. This would enable you to give, say: author permission to a user directly from WGM. (I have not tried that).
