Enhance Authentication and Authorization

Currently LDAP integration with SAML SSO (OKTA in our case) is not supported in IBM Cloud Pack for Data. This needs to enabled as as Authentication can work with SSO and Authorization will be using LDAP groups.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? As a customer this will help manage the roles by the AD group while SSO is working
How should it work?

Once LDAP and SAML SSO (OKTA) co exist together in the system , we will be able add users to AD groups which will grant them access to project and roles assigned to the group.

  1. Ability to assign the default roles to groups instead of instead of individual user id

  2. Ability control the collaborator role using AD group with SSO enabled.

  3. Ability for admin account / admin AD group to see the all projects that have been added , and resources (regardless of whether they are collaborator or not)

Idea Priority High
Priority Justification AD group can't be used as SSO enabled.
