We are currently using Liferay 6.1 and have LDAP configured with import by group and confirmed that users are coming in correctly. Groups are also being imported but when there is a nested group (i.e. a group within the group), Liferay is not assigning the users in this nested group to the parent group.

Is there a way to import the list of users in this subgroup without writing our own implementation of the LDAPImportUtil class?

Thanks,

-Jack

Hi Jack,

Did you find a way to import the nested groups yet? I know it's been some time, but I've been searching for the same thing and found another thread that has a good solution:

http://www.liferay.com/community/forums/-/message_boards/message/16668284

... at least it is for Active Directory.

Hope it helps!
Patricia

I still having problems with this: using mappings like user=member:1.2.840.113556.1.4.1941: or group=memberof:1.2.840.113556.1.4.1941: will not work, it will return nothing. Tried to find info about this but cant find anything

Hi Bruno - Have you seen these properties?:
#ldap.import.group.base.dn.default=
#ldap.import.group.base.dn.enabled=true

Maybe this will help pinpoint the location of your groups that may be different location from your users...?
