By using LDAP and GroupLink’s contact management solution you can administer security rights to your customer data and know it is safe.
Would you like to limit what employees at your organization can do with your customer information? Would you like to:
- Know that only upper management can access all data
- Know that mid-management can access only customer information that pertains to their responsibility
- Know that the day-to-day users can be grouped together by department or individuals on read only, write only, and/or modify access
- Know that you can administer all of this through your groups you already have set up in LDAP
How does it work?
First you will want to import your customer data in ContactWise, a Novell Partner for contact management solutions. Import your data through the ContactWise import utility, which will take any csv or excel file. Once your customer information is in the system you will then go to the ContactWise Database Administrator. You will then be able to pull up your LDAP information and assign rights by either an LDAP user or an LDAP group. If rights are assigned to an LDAP user, those rights only affect that particular LDAP user. If rights are assigned to an LDAP group, those rights affect all the members of that LDAP group.
