[librecat-dev] LDAP

Still in vacation here. But you can use a command line tool to test the authentication setup:


 $ bin/authentication_admin.pl

There are very many options when doing a LDAP authentication. Every institution can have local variations. If the code doesn't provide a stack trace, then the code is ok, but the authentication handshakes don't provide the desired results.

With the authentical_admin you have at least a Perl program you can run through a debugger and see which step doesn't provide the desired result. We based the code on what Bielefeld or Ghent University does with LDAP (both use a somewhat different strategy).

Cheers and till later

Hi there, hope you had a great vacation or maybe you still enjoying it ;)

Anyways, I replaced the info based on our own LDP-Configuration in 'catmandu.local.yml', but probably missing something, because it is not working. I would really appreciate your input:

      - package: LibreCat::Auth::LDAP
          host: 'ug-sub-s1.sub.uni-goettingen.de'
          base: '************'
          password: '****************'
          auth_base: 'cn=%s,ou=Benutzer,dc=sub,dc=uni-goettingen,dc=de'
          search_filter: '(cn=%s)'
          search_base: 'OU=Benutzer,DC=sub,DC=uni-goettingen,DC=de'
          search_attr: 'cn'
