Hi Brane, Thank you for reply. I am providing some inputs about my experiement as of now. I am using ‘httpd-2.2.15-54.el6.centos.x86_64’ httpd. I have attached ldif file and ‘/etc/httpd/conf.d/subversion.conf’ files for your reference. I have also attached ‘sssd.conf’ (to interact with LDAP).
Still I have not been able to grant read access to gidNumber: 500 and read/write access to gidNumber: 491 from ldap. Do you see any obvious issue in attached files? Your advice will be a great help!

Currently we are using ‘/var/www/svn/users-access-file’ to store SVN admin users. Problem with this approach is if new admin users are added in LDAP then we have to change above file as well (for adding new users). Also, storing user names in ‘/var/www/svn/users-access-file’ is always discouraged as it may violate security. So, is there any way I can avoid using ‘/var/www/svn/users-access-file’ and achieve read/write access to SVN based on groups of LDAP users? I am also investing but as I am new to this area so your help may improve my investigation. Yes, this is easily done; here's an example of the access part of the httpd config file (for httpd 2.4.x): <RequireAll> Require valid-user <Limit HEAD GET OPTIONS PROPFIND REPORT> <RequireAny> # Read access Require ldap-group cn=svn.admin,ou=group,dc=example,dc=com Require ldap-group cn=svn.readonly,ou=group,dc=example,dc=com </RequireAny> </Limit> <LimitExcept HEAD GET OPTIONS PROPFIND REPORT> <RequireAny> # Write access Require ldap-group cn=svn.admin,ou=group,dc=example,dc=com </RequireAny> </LimitExcept> </RequireAll> -- Brane
