# LDAP Group Mapping

# Preamble

The EE server supports the LDAP protocol that allows you to configure an external LDAP service for authentication. In addition the LDAP server may provide groups. This guide here will explain how to map a LDAP group to a Psono group. We assume that you already have configured LDAP correctly with the necessary attribute configuration, so groups are transferred proper. If not please check out the appropriate configuration guide.


This feature is only available in the Enterprise Edition.

  6. (optional) Grant Share Admin

    If you want to allow users of this LDAP group to add new shares to this group, you have to grant them Share Admin.

    Grant Share Admin


    It is considered best practise to share only one folder per group and add new entries or subfoldes to that one shared folder. That way all shares are instant and noone has to accept new shared secrets.

  7. Finished

    Whenever a user logs in with LDAP, the server will map Psono groups according to the user's LDAP groups and grant the user the necessary permissions. If a user loses access to a group the server will remove the user from the Psono group upon next login.
