Creating a user that authenticates to an LDAP server

Use Sybase Central to create a user that authenticates to an LDAP server.


You must have the MANAGE ANY USER system privilege.

Context and remarks

Users that authenticate to an LDAP server must be identified to the database. The responses shown below are for demonstration purposes only. Supply your own appropriate equivalent responses.

  1. In Sybase Central, use the SQL Anywhere 16 plug-in to connect to the database.

  2. In the left pane, right-click Users and click New » User.

  3. Enter the name of the new user (ldap_user01 for example), and then click Next.

  4. Ensure that Assign a password to this user is not selected.

  5. For Login policy, select the login policy (ldap_policy_both for example).

  6. Click Next.

  7. (Optional) Add a comment. Click Next.

  8. The SQL that is executed to create the user appears. Click Finish.


A database user is created that uses an LDAP server to authenticate. Whenever the LDAP server is not available, standard authentication takes place.


Connect to the database using the user ID and LDAP password.
