OneView is making anonymous queries to OpenLDAP


I'm trying to integrate OneView 3.10.04-0299553 with OpenLDAP and authentication and group assigments are working fine my only problem is the following:

When OneView makes a query to OpenLDAP it does it in an anonymous (not bind) way, which means that it requieres an open permissions to everyone without account to read OpenLDAP which is a big security risk for our customer.

My question is: is it possible to force OneView to use bind queries (from specific users or groups) when authenticating users? if not, should we open a support case for this?

If you need more info please let me know.

The bind requests in OV uses simple authentication with user name and password. The DN required for binding a OpenLDAP request is internally built by OV before making a LDAP query. The parameters required to form the DN like baseDN, OU etc., are stored in OV during directory configuration.
