Version 6 (modified by anonymous, 5 years ago) (diff)




The LdapAuthStorePlugin is a password store for the AccountManagerPlugin that provides authentication and group membership from an LDAP service. Users are authenticated by performing an LDAP bind against a directory using their credentials. The plugin will also pull the email address and username from the directory and populate the session_attribute table.

It does work with current Trac (1.0.1) + LdapPlugin + AccountManagerPlugin against OpenLDAP.


At the suggestion from comment:26:ticket:1147, k0s posted the plugin from ticket:1147 as a standalone hack.

Based on his work i have taken from #1600 and merged in the session store parts of, from #1147
