DSE documentation is correct:


  1. Setup internal user
  2. Assign internal user to LDAP group
  3. Create permissions in DSE for the LDAP group
  4. Login as internal user to see permissions from internal and LDAP group associations.


https://github.com/rmdave/dse_ldap_example has brief overview of how to set up a test environment - DSE from Azure Marketplace, OpenLDAP in Docker instance, DSE and LDAP configs, and videos on permissions enforcement.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLl3G86xuJVydH22sJqzGODHebxAmpVc_C are 6 short videos for each stage of the setup and demo.


Feel free to let me know if this format works or doesn't!
