Different roles within the same Distribution List

We have configured an LDAP authentication in our Denodo system. We have different databases created meant for different users but under the same Distribution List(DL). So if i want to assign privilege for a user to a particular database from the DL, will it be possible without individually giving access to the user for that database?

Hi, In order to assign privileges to a particular user or a group of users, I would use any of the existing LDAP attributes which can logically group the users within the same Distribution List and edit the Role Base Pattern for a database , which can be found under **Administration > Database Management > ‘database name’ > Edit** in the Virtual DataPort Administration Tool. Alternatively, I would create specific roles in LDAP to group the users as required and import them as ‘**Roles**’ in Virtual DataPort Administration Tool. For more details, refer the sections “[Creating Database with LDAP Authentication](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/7.0/vdp/administration/databases_users_and_access_rights_in_virtual_dataport/administration_of_databases_users_roles_and_their_access_rights/creating_databases#creating-a-database-with-ldap-authentication)” and “[Creating Roles](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/6.0/vdp/administration/databases_users_and_access_rights_in_virtual_dataport/administration_of_databases_users_roles_and_their_access_rights/creating_roles#creating-roles)” from the Virtual DataPort Administrator guide. Hope this helps!
