CFLDAP and Read only access to pages

CFLDAP and Read only access to pages

CFLDAP and Read only access to pages

I'm not very advanced in coldfusion programming. I'd like to use CFLDAP to authenticate a user against active directory. Then, depending on what group they are in, I'd like to limit their access to certain pages. I have the authentication part working, but not sure how to use active directory groups to limit a person's access to a page.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you.

RE: CFLDAP and Read only access to pages

It's been a while but it depends on how your forest and such is setup in AD. look at the contents of memberOf, CN, and SN.

the member of is the full OU, for example one of my filters reads:
!(memberOf=CN=MyDomain Do Not Display,CN=Users,DC=MyDomain,DC=net)
