----------------------------------------

             Summary: LDAP Server for User Authentication doc doesn't specify how authenticate
a user  
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-6188
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLOUDSTACK-6188
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: Doc
    Affects Versions: 4.2.0, 4.2.1
            Reporter: Kiran Koneti
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 4.2.1, 4.2.0


In the documentation for the Ldap user authentication located at http://cloudstack.apache.org/docs/en-US/Apache_CloudStack/4.2.0/html/Admin_Guide/LDAPserver-for-user-authentication.html
,it is specified on how to add the Ldap serevr to the CS but steps are not provided on how
to authenticate the Ldap users from the CS.Please add the below steps in the document to make
that clear.

In the version 4.2 and 4.2.1 there is no way to directly import the Ldap users into the CS,hence
we nee to manually create the Ldap users in the CS with the desired role which we want to
give for that particular ldap user in the CS giving some random password. The Ldap user can
then login to the CS using this password or else can login to the CS using the LDap password.
When the user tries to login CS initially validates the password with the local db and if
the password doesn't match it tries to validate with the ldap password for the same user and
provides the authentication for the user.
