Special features - Active Directory Multi Plugin

Properties of the ADMultiPlugin instance:

  • groupid_attr - the LDAP attribute used for group ids.
  • grouptitle_attr - the LDAP attribute used to compose group titles.
  • group_class - the LDAP class of group objects.
  • group_recurse - boolean indicating whether to determine group memberships of a user by unrolling nested group relationships (expensive). This feature is not guaranteed to work at this moment.

Active Directory configuration hints

In order for groups support to work correctly, you may have to set the following properties. Every situation is different, but this has helped some people succeed:

  • On the “Properties” tab for the ActiveDirectoryMultiPlugin, set the groupid_attr property to “name”.
  • On the contained LDAPUserFolder’s “Configure” tab, choose a property other than “objectGUID”, e.g. “sAMAccountName” for the User ID property. To get to the LDAPUserFolder, click on the ActiveDirectoryMultiPlugin “Content” tab.

Please see README.ActiveDirectory from the LDAPUserFolder package for additional information.
