LDAP Authentication Enhancement

    Background:

    Currently, LDAP requires an administrator user to login (as configured on the LDAP Server configuration), and then all other users can login. This means that all the other users need to be under the same tree of the administrator user, regardless of the levels of nested folders. 

    If the administrator user and the other users are in parallel folders, BOARD LDAP authentication will not be able to work.

     

    Suggestion:

    To enhance the current LDAP authentication to enable users to be authenticated even when they are located in parallel folders.
