LDAP Authorization – Drupal Roles

Configure Authentication, Authorization, SSO
Here’s where it falls off tracks: LDAP authentication works, but I can’t get any LDAP attribute to Drupal role mapping to work — looks like it wants to use ldap groups, not user attributes.
Needed to create dummy directory sociology/users/login/sso and place .htaccess there.
I took out WebAuth stuff from root .htacccess, and added the rewrite statement
RewriteRule user/.* index.php [L]
put this in user/login/sso/.htaccessAuthType WebAuth
WebAuthOptional Offturned off “automated/seamless single sign-on” in LDAP AuthenticationUnder Structure=> Blocks Moved User Login Block from sidebar to disabled
Under Structure-> Menu added Login with path user/login/sso
And like magic, http://soceval.w3.uvm.edu/sociology/
LDAP mapping to Drupal rolles still pending. Going to try Organic Groups
