Enable LDAP in GSA 9.0.0

I’m trying to enable LDAP Authentication in GSA 9.0.0 but the ‘Enabled’ check button doesn’t respond properly. I still see the Enabled status as ‘No’. Therefore I’m unable to create users with Ldap authentication as the only option I see when creating a new user is authentication via password.

Interestingly when I check the database ‘meta’ table the ldap_enable value is correctly changed from 0 to 1. Also, sending gvm-cli commands changes ldap_enable correctly, so I think the functionality itself is fine.

Anyone encountered a similar problem? I can see that similar issue was fixed in https://github.com/greenbone/gsa/pull/1723
but I built recently using the 9.0.0 and I still can’t change the authentication.

I did my libs check as per https://github.com/greenbone/gsa/issues/1339 and it seems to be properly installed.

GVM versions

gsa: 9.0~git-0fe296e82
gvm: 9.0.0~git-a46996fe
openvas-scanner: OpenVAS 7.0.0
gvm-libs: 11.0


Operating system: debian buster
Installation method / source: https://github.com/greenbone

It looks like https://github.com/greenbone/gsa/issues/1339 is still open so monitoring / subscribing to this issue is currently recommended to see if any updates are provided by the development team.

Hi cfi,
many thanks for answering. I’ve been aware of this issue in 8.0.0, but I have the same problem in 9.0.0. I guess I will try some workarounds this week…

Ok, I managed to solve it by using 9.0 branch instead.
