After configuring LDAP, how do I define a user to be an Administrator in Jaspersoft?
Jaspersoft 6.3

If you're mapping all your external users to a single organization, you can assign static roles to users. This lets you specify a list of administrative users and roles, and a list of roles for non-administrative users. To define static roles, use the externalUserSetupProcessor or mtExternalUserSetupProcessor bean. To set up static roles, locate the version of the bean used in <js-webapp>/samples/applicationContext-externalAuth-LDAP.xml and configure the following properties:

<bean id="mtExternalUserSetupProcessor" class="
  <property name="adminUsernames">


<property name="defaultAdminRoles">

After doing this cycle the tomcat service on the Jaspersoft server and attempt to login with your LDAP credentials.  You should now be an "Administrator" within Jaspersoft
