# Additional Feature to LDAP Plugin

Reported by: Owned by: wallis@… Emmanuel Blot normal LdapPlugin normal

### Description

I have been tasked with investigating using LDAP groups to manage permissions in a trac instance. I've come across your LdapPlugin and believe it is exactly what we require. There is one feature that I need that I think is missing.

Is it possible to enable a mechanism to allow users to change thier LDAP password from within trac, either via this plugin or some other way?

With thanks.

Type: defect → enhancement

Up to now, the LDAP plugin only provide permissions to the Trac engine, not authentication information.

Authentication is performed by the Apache2 server, not by Trac (it only handles permissions)

This feature would require an additional plugin (as we need a web interface to change such a setting), such as AccountManagerPlugin.

Anyway, there are few chances that LdapPlugin support such a feature as long as the IUserDirectory interface is fully defined then implemented in the Trac engine. Therefore, this can only be considered as a mid- or long-term feature.
