LDAP - Adding New users

After installing the “XWiki Jetty HSQLDB 11.9” on my CentOS box, I added the LDAP authentication properties in WEB-INF/xwiki.cfg as “Admin”. Now, I could not add myself (AD id) as a new user. Later I logged in as a normal user (using AD credentials) from another system and I am able to see my user id under “Users” list.

Do I need to change some settings so that I add other AD users directly?

Hi @dominic01
All the needed settings for configuring the LDAP authenticator in XWiki are described in https://extensions.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Extension/LDAP/Authenticator/#HGenericLDAPconfiguration.
The users in XWiki are created upon login with AD credentials. You don’t have to manually create users because they will be created when someone tries to authenticate in XWIki with AD user and pass.

Hope it helps,
