2004s - Users in LDAP,


I have modified the UME xml file, and am now pulling my users from our (readonly) ldap server(s). The users apppear to be successfully imported - I can login with a UME DB user, and search for users that exist only in LDAP. I can also login with an LDAP user, but they don't have any roles assigned to them.

When I try to assign a role to an LDAP user, I get an error:

"You need to enter a valid value to proceed with the requested action"

And it has marked in the details of the user the "Logon ID" as a required field. It isn't possible for me to edit this field (I assume because it is stored in the readonly LDAP database). Note that the logonalias field is correctly populated with the LDAP username

Does anyone know how I can assign roles to LDAP users? The roles should be held in the portal DB, as the LDAP database is readonly.

Have I missed a setting that tells the roles to be stored in the database, or is there something else that I'm missing?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.
