2266986 - Support for Proxy service to proxy the LDAP authentication - SAP PD 16.5


  • We would like the PowerDesigner Proxy Service to proxy the LDAP Authentication.  
  • Right now, when you are logged into the Proxy to connect to the repository, the client receives the information from the server and tries to authenticate to the LDAP server from the client.
  • What we would like to see is that the authentication request to the LDAP server be made by the proxy service, not the client application.  
  • Our desktop clients machines are on a segregated network from the repository server.  While we can open up the firewall to allow the access to proxy and portal services, there is no guarantee that these clients can see the LDAP server, or if they can that they will have the same trust relationship with the LDAP sever.
