Steps to reproduce
Steps to reproduce:
1. Configure multiple LDAP files
2. Login with some User ID
Nothing happens. No hits on my LDAP server.
LDAP should authenticate the user and proceed to find ROLES
To this day, LDAP cannot still be used in Opencast as a source for authentication (only for authorization alongside a CAS server).
I have created a working solution for this, which kind of works around the existing classes to deal with LDAP, but at least does the job in a standard way (sort of).
I have filled the pull request #777 against the version r/1.6.x, which will then be merged with r/1.7.x . The version 2.1 will have to wait for a little longer --LDAP requires certain runtime dependencies that I'm not sure how to setup in Karaf --but I'll get there.
The general idea is valid for 1.4, yes. Some of the files (notably config.properties and system.properties) have been changed since those docs were written, but other than that I needed relatively little modification to get things working. It is indeed CAS for authn and LDAP for authz, which I suppose is not what this ticket was actually about. I don't know of any docs regarding LDAP authn.
is this valid for 1.4 as well? And it seems to me this is cas for authenication and ldap for authorization. Is that a correct observation?
https://opencast.jira.com/wiki/display/MH/University+of+Saskatchewan+CAS+and+LDAP+integration is what you're looking for I suspect. They're a tad out of date, but the parts that are out of date are fairly well documented within the files themselves (system.properties springs to mind).
sorry, but i'm unable to find the docs for this. can anyone direct me?
