Adding LDAP Users

  • Last updated on

This article refers to Barracuda Message Archiver firmware 5.0 and higher.

Use the USERS > LDAP Users Add/Update page to associate an LDAP User or LDAP Group to a Barracuda Message Archiver role and list of email addresses. For example, you may want to prevent a user with the Auditor role from viewing specific user mailboxes.

Use the following steps to add an LDAP user or group:

  1. Log in to the Barracuda Message Archiver, and go to the USERS > LDAP Users Add/Update page.
  2. In the LDAP User/Group field, enter the LDAP User or Group name to which the permissions apply.

    The LDAP User/Group value can be any type of group such as a distribution group. Note that this cannot be an organizational unit (OU).

  3. From the Role drop-down menu, select the role associated with the LDAP User/Group entry:
    • If you select the role User, specify whether to include or exclude mailbox addresses from the LDAP account:
      • In the Include these Addresses field, enter a mailbox address you want to make available to the specified LDAP account, and then click Add.
      • In the Exclude these Addresses, enter a mailbox address to hide from the specified LDAP account, and then click Add.
    • If you select the role Auditor, configure the permissions:
      • In the Domains field, enter a domain for which the auditor can view mail, and then click Add.
      • If you have defined Saved Searches in the BASIC > Search page, select a Saved Search from the drop-down menu to filter the auditor's search results.
      • In the Exclude these Addresses, enter a mailbox address to hide from the specified LDAP account, and then click Add.
    • If you select the role IT ADMIN, the specified LDAP User/Group account has IT Admin permissions only.
    • If you select the role Admin, enter a mailbox address to hide from the account in the Exclude these Addresses, and then click Add.
  4. Click Save.

In the LDAP User/Group, Include these Addresses, and Exclude these Addresses fields, enter the first three letters of a user or group name to display all matching values from which you can select.


Continue with LDAP User Include/Exclude Rules.
