Frequently Asked Question

LDAP users are actually created outside of Yellowfin (e.g. in Active Directory), their user account is only created in the Yellowfin DB when they first log into Yellowfin.
This means there is no actual way to 'create' LDAP users in Yellowfin, as these accounts are automatically created when the user first logs in.

You can however flag an existing user as an LDAP user if his credentials match in the LDAP server,
You can also setup source filters/access filters prior to the user logging in.

ALL new YF users (including LDAP users) will initially be given the default role unless otherwise specified.
