Subject Re: How to use LDAP Authority with Documentum Repository connection
Date Thu, 27 Jun 2013 12:16:07 GMT
Thanks Karl,

But intentionally I am trying to use LDAP group for authorization.
Additionally in the repository connection setting under the Type tab the
Authority connection is configurable by keeping the options in a drop-down
list. Thus I thought this can be possible.
