LI77130: AS AN LDAP USER IN THE VIEWER GROUP I AM ABLE TO PERFORM EDITS
Closed as program error.
In WebSphere Cast Iron V6.3, when using LDAP authentication,users in the "viewer" group able to edit.
Either do not use LDAP as an authentication method, or, verify that the LDAP users defined in the veiwer group are allowed to temporarily have this elevated privilege
Due to this implication of viewers being users when LDAP is enabled, viewers can do everything that normal users can do. Keeping this in mind, verify that your appliance viewers, under the "viewer" group, are trusted as users. Alternatively, disable LDAP authentication.
The WebSphere Cast Iron code has been updated and a fix has been put in place. The update is planned to be released in WebSphere Cast Iron fix pack 22.214.171.124 Announcements of new fix packs are made on the WebSphere Cast Iron Support Portal at http://www-947.ibm.com/support/entry/portal/Overview/Software/We bSphere_Cast_Iron_Cloud_integration Fix pack planned delivery schedules can be viewed here: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27036374
