I have a web application that uses Form based authentication. The authentic users are in the Active directory. The roles and groups are configured in web and weblogic xmls. I have configured the LDAP provider in weblogic and can see the users of Active Directory. Now, how to map the user/principal of active directory to a role in my web application. I am using a weblogic tutorial and have done as indicated. But there is some link missing.


How do I tell weblogic that the user is authorised to access the home page? I get a 403:forbidden when i use the login credentials of and password.
Is there anything I have to do other than configuring 'ES Manager Application' security realm?

Your help will be very useful.

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
