Role = User mapping

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 http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E24329_01/web.1211/e24485/thin_client.htm#i1057576 and have done as indicated. But there is some link missing.


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

Your help will be very useful.
