Re: Restrict access to windchill

Instead of using 'Require ldap-filter', you can add the filter directly to the ldap url in apache, and to the JNDI adapter in Windchill. In your <Apache>/conf/extra/app-Windchill-AuthProvider.xml file, your ldap URL will look like:
ldap://<Ldap Host>:<Ldap Port>/<Search Base>?<Attribute>?<Scope>?<Filter>

Update the filter section of the URL with your ldap filter. Then, from your apache directory, run the below to propagate the configuration:
ant -f webAppConfig.xml regenWebAppConf

After restarting apache, all ldap queries it makes to that provider will use the specified URL. That will restrict what users are able to log in, but you'll still need to add the filter to the JNDI adapter to restict what users Windchill can query for. In Windchill go to Site->Utilities->InfoEngine Administration. Select your JNDI adapter from the list of adapters and add the property:
<JNDI Adapter Name>.windchill.mapping.user.filter=<Filter>
