Hi Maneesh,

Just to clarify your first statement, do you require a particular set of 
user accounts stored in LDAP
to only have access to one or more queues?

If that is the case then this can be achieved using a combination of the 
External Authentication and LDAPimport
functionality, documentation can be found here:


The External Auth handles user import, but you need LDAP Import to 
create the groups, these groups can either by static
groups or dynamically created using a LDAP search filter.

Then all you need to do is assign the correct perms for the group and 
apply it to the queue.

Sorry to describe at such a high level, but the authentication system is 
very flexible and with that comes
a little complexity.

Hope that helps.

Best Regards
